I’m listing a large number of vintage monster and horror film magazines, fanzines and prozines, all very strictly and conservatively graded, so be sure to see my other auctions! These are all true auctions with reasonable starting bids--not high-priced Buy-It-Nows. These magazines are part of a large collection that has been well cared for, and have been kept for years in archival quality storage.
Here's a beautiful copy of the rare 15th issue of Mark Frank's excellent horror and science fiction fanzine. At this time in its history the magazine was hand stapled. This copy has a second set of staple holes--I assume this is because it was unsuccessfully stapled the first time then redone. There's a little bit of paper damage to the cover around these holes. Other than this it is like new.
All magazines are complete with no cut coupons, major defects, tape, or writing unless noted. Photos are of the actual issue you are bidding on.
