#47: Fangoria #1

by John Ballentine
John Ballentine, co-author of two volumes of The Monster Magazine & Fanzine Collector’s, picks his Top 50 issues from the vast history of genre publications.

Fangoria #1Fangoria #1, August 1979

Publisher: Kerry O’ Quinn
Editor: Joe Bonham

Publishing for over 30 years, Fangoria has proved to be one of the genre’s longest running and most durable magazines in history. Though concentrating mainly on hardcore blood and guts, its maiden issue kicked off with a stellar variety of non-gore-related articles, including an interview with Hammer legend Christopher Lee, the making of The Creature from the Black Lagoon, “25 years with Godzilla” by Ed Godziszewski, a visit with make-up artist Tom Savini and a preview of Ridley Scott’s Alien.

Tune in next week for #47!
