    I recently took out a subscription and I have to say, I am so glad I did – what an amazing publication. Thanks to all involved.

  2. Nelson Monteiro, Oxfordshire, UK

    Got it this morning and getting ready to tuck in. 😉 Love the magazine a lot – it is very informative and insightful.

  3. Andrew Bark, Manchester, UK

    Having met the guys behind this terrific publication I can say they are a lovely bunch and this is truly a labour of love. If you haven’t read it yet, and you fancy a beautifully illustrated nostalgic monster mag, then give it a go.

  4. Gareth Barnes

    What I’ve read of it so far, it’s a fantastic issue, just as good as the first one. Keep up the great work please.

  7. Richard Gardener, Carmarthenshire, UK

    Just received my first two magazines and I have to say “I’m In For The Long Haul” fantastic really enjoying the content and layout. Well done Nige and all the team can’t wait for number three.

  8. Mark Goldstein, Maine, US

    This is seriously the best horror movie mag since I was a kid. The article about the monster model kits from the first issue brought back great memories. It was brilliant adding that article to the magazine.

  9. Nick Schiavone, California, US

    Got my copy this past Saturday. Read it in two days. This one was better than the first issue. Love the Mummy series and the Hammer Frankenstein movies. I look forward to the summer issue.

    I subscribed a few months ago and promptly received issue 2. The publication is outstanding and I’m eagerly awaiting the ‘creature’ issue.

  14. Jamie Tutino, Connecticut, US

    Your magazine blows anything away we have here in the States, and I want to thank you and commend you on all the hard work and amazing products you release. Best of luck with all future releases, as you will have me as a customer for life!

  15. Kent Miller, Utah, US

    It’s fantastic cover to cover. Don’t miss an issue. Get a subscription . I did and the first three issues are all incredible!

  16. Nick Gay, Wiltshire, UK

    What a fantastic high-end magazine you’ve given us; stunning in every respect. I cannot wait to be transported back to my youth again by Issue 4. Absolutely fang-tastic! (Sorry LOL). Please keep doing what you’re doing – it’s superb! Many, many thanks.

  17. Frederick Pineau, New Hampshire, US

    I’ve been a subscriber since issue #1, and you have a great magazine! It’s among the finest quality magazines, from the stock used to print on to the contents – Totally collectable. I just purchased an annual subscription for my son, and I know that he will enjoy it every bit as much as I have – Keep up the good work!

  18. Paul Waddington, Yorkshire, UK

    I received the magazines I ordered this morning and I just wanted to write to you to say that I am really pleased with them. I haven’t read them yet, but they look absolutely fantastic and deserve to be more widely known. I have bought the two Hammer special editions and will be ordering all the Universal special edition magazines from you.

    I am looking forward to seeing where you take this, because I have been searching for this type of magazine for a very long time and have always been disappointed.

    Keep up the good work!

  19. Paul Das, Cleveland, UK

    So impressed that I am now a `New` subscriber to the Magazine and the Ultimate Guides (Extremely Lavish Brochures) are gorgeous. I am Hooked. Thanks!

  20. Jim Judge, Buckinghamshire, UK

    Absolutely loving them!

  21. John Rose, Mississippi, US

    So I have received my order of Classic Monsters magazines, including the boxed set of Movie Guides. These are incredible. This is like the Smithsonian Magazine version of Famous Monsters Of Filmland. The quality and images are absolutely stunning, and I cannot wait for my subscription to get started proper and to receive the other items I ordered. Truly a labor of love and commitment. Thank you for these, so much.

  22. Roger Smart, Northamptonshire, UK

    Loving the magazines. Well put together and worth reading.

  23. Olwen Phelan, Bedfordshire, UK

    What a lovely publication.

  24. Anthony Temple, Yorkshire, UK

    Like Famous Monsters of Filmland from the 60s only 100 times better!

  25. Robert Reiner, Illinois, US

    I got issues 1, 2 and 3 today! Thank you these are great.

  26. Dan Skopp, Wisconsin, US

    I got Issues 1,2 and 3 today!! I am impressed. I love the layout and the contents of the mags. I am a 70 year old horror fan and I’m sure that “Uncle Forrie” would also be enthusiastic about the mag. Waiting for more!!!!!!

  27. Nick Gay, Wiltshire, UK

    Keep it up, your work is beyond sterling. Thanks for everything so far with CMoM – stunning work 🙂

  28. Clay Cortinas, San Jacinto, CA USA

    Great format especially in the presentation of the photos. Very sharp & crisp. Looking forward to future issues.

  29. Bill Cavanaugh, California, US

    Your magazine is outstanding. The writing, the photos…all of it!

  30. Stephen Burnip, Merseyside, UK

    Just want to say what a fantastic fabulous job you guys have done on these mags very professional indeed. Keep up the fantastic work.

  31. James Clatterbaugh

    I happily now have the first four issues and all the guides. Take it from someone who always prided themselves on delivering a top-notch presentation of photos and in-depth articles over our 20 plus year run (I’m the Editor/Publisher of MONSTERS FROM THE VAULT) when I say you won’t find a better looking magazine being published today, period! I’m even envious of your use of color and the high quality paper and printing. It’s also GREAT to see the very talented Daniel Horne’s art appearing in the cover of a classic monster magazine. Daniel’s paintings were featured on the cover of eight issues of MFTV. CLASSIC MONSTERS OF THE MOVIES gets MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! This publication is a perfect replacement for FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND 3.0 (now that they’re changing direction) and MONSTERS FROM THE VAULT now that we’re ceasing publication after one final issue to be published later this year. Best of luck to all involved and I look forward to many more issues!

  32. Nathan Blanchard, Minnesota, US

    Really enjoy the magazine a lot, as well as the guides.

  33. Gary Zanow, Arizona, US

    Thank you for putting out such an amazing, and unbelievably reasonably-priced yet very high quality zine.

  34. Dale Collins, England

    I purchased issues 1-4. Brilliant magazine. I enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed reading House of Hammer which I collected in the 1970s.

  35. Mark Filippini, New Jersey, US

    I love the magazine and all the guides you guys are putting out.

  36. Joseph Buttler, California, US

    Thank you for all you do. The issues I have received are great and a very enjoyable read.

  37. Stephen Burnip, Merseyside, UK

    Hi there, just want to say these mags are class, best I’ve seen in a long time. I have them next to Dez Skinn’s House of Hammer in my collection. You should have a page for folk to leave feedback and see some great comments left no doubt. Keep up the high standards as they are fantastic.

  38. Chris Adams, Kentucky, US

    I am a subscriber to Classic Monsters magazine, and I have purchased all of your special guides to date. I absolutely LOVE your publications. The pictures, artwork, and information are all unparalleled. THANK YOU for providing us classic monsters fans with such wonderful resources. Your hard work is much appreciated by “monster kids” the world over.

  39. David Corvino, South Carolina, US

    As a charter subscriber, I must tell you how happy I am with all of your publications. I buy every issue, every book you release. My collection is growing!

    I just received issue 5 and it is fantastic. I ordered three new DVDs based on the articles in it. The format, paper, clarity, writing, photographs and content are the best anywhere. Classic Monsters has no equal!

    Thanks for keeping the high quality you began with. It is the most important thing there is.

  40. Alan Granville

    I’ve subscribe to this fantastic magazine since issue 1, I have been waiting for a horror mag like this for years and now I can look forward to my issue coming through my door, it has everything you could want great photos, stills and fantastic stories, keep up the good work and may it continue for years to come.

  41. Dana Jensen

    Classic magazine! On the same level with “Famous Monsters of Filmland” which itself was one of the classic magazines. I have never seen such great quality in a fan related magazine like “Classic Monsters”! Every page on glossy paper, with many in color! The Classic Monsters are very LUCKY to have such a great publication appreciating their greatness! LOL

  42. Eckhard Schuetze, Heidelberg, Germany

    These books are AMAZING !

  43. Steven Beai, Colorado, US

    I’m absolutely thrilled to see CLASSIC MONSTERS going bi-monthly and I just can’t say enough about the quality of every single item produced, from the mags to the film books, sticker sets and beyond. Not to mention the care taken with shipping every product — and did I mention how grateful I am for the stellar customer service you provide — from the regular updates to the personal replies to inquiries.

    As a fan and collector of all things classic monsters for over 40 years, I am fortunate enough to have one of the largest collections of monster magazines dating back to the ultra-rare UK one-shot of SCREEN THRILLS, as well as complete runs of every Warren magazine (Famous Monsters, Eerie, Creepy, Vampirella, etc.), I can say with absolute authority there is nothing like CLASSIC MONSTERS OF THE MOVIES here in the States…nothing that comes remotely close.

  44. Paul Murden, Lincolnshire, UK

    You guys do a fantastic job, and my only regret is that you weren’t around when I first got into classic horror films all those years ago! Keep up the great work.

  45. Michael Mirin

    Great magazine! Reminds me of Famous Monsters of Filmland when I was a kid.The next Classic.
