Monster Mania

Renaissance Productions
Publishers: Russ Jones, Lee Irgang
Editor: Russ Jones

Excellent mature mag, like the best fanzines, but with a professional gloss and newsstand distribution. Lots of Hammer Films coverage, interviews, news and reviews, plus many well reproduced and rare photos. Publisher/Editor Jones had previously worked for Warren Publishing as a cover artist and editor and helped launch the Warren horror comics line by creating Creepy magazine.

No. 1

No. 2
Cover Art by Frank Frazetta

No. 3


  1. I bought issues #1 and #3 but missed the Frazetta edition. Like Castle of Frankenstein, it was a cut above Famous Monsters and others. I wish they'd made a go of it.
