    I received Issue #5 with today’s post. Thank you for putting out such an amazing, and unbelievably reasonably-priced yet very high quality zine.

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

    Another great issue. I am continually amazed at the quality & clarity of the photos. The only magazine that matches you in this regard is Freaky Monsters published here in the states. Would really like to see some articles on the unsung heroes of classic horror such as Jack Kelvan, Roy Ashton, and the mysterious Millicent Patrick. Carry on and continue to grow.

    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.

  7. 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.

    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.

    Your wonderful Classic Monsters collection is great and brings back many memories for me(I’m 64) I remember staying in the cinema all day watching the Hammer films when they showed them as a double and at one time a triple bill(Those were the days) There was one cinema that showed all the universal Frankenstein films all week then followed the next week with the Dracula films, Wolfman, and the Mummy films. Thanks to Blu Ray I can see almost all of these great films in their glory, And thanks to you all for bringing out this wonderful collection I now know everything about these films. I hope you will continue to add more films to your collection(I hope to get them all,if I can) My greatest actors are Sir Christopher Frank Carandini Lee, Boris Karloff(William Henry Pratt), Peter Wilton Cushing, Vincent Leonard Price, Jr., John Christopher Depp II(Johnny Depp), Donald Pleasence, and the great Bela Ferenc Dezso Blasko, better known as- Bela Lugosi.

    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.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.
