1974 - 1975
Posterbooks were very popular, in Britain, in the '70s. Legend Horror Classics was a bit different than Monster Mag in that it featured a horror comic strip in each issue. The strips were primarily drawn by Kevin O'Neill, who would later draw The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen books. The back cover of the books featured a portrait of a popular film star, like Bela Lugosi, or Peter Cushing and when the posterbook was opened a full color photo from a British horror film filled the other side. Starting with issue number 10, Legend Horror Classics dropped the comic strip and switched to all film features format. Number 10 was an all Vampires issue, no. 11 Werewwolves and no. 12 Frankenstein.
Thanks to Maurice for the scans of no. 10 and no. 12!
