In my estimation this is perhaps the single best issue of FAMOUS MONSTERS ever published. Issue number fifty-six is entirely devoted to honoring the life and career of the one and only Boris Karloff. It's just too bad that Boris had to pass away for us to get such a great issue.

From the magnificent cover by Basil Gogos, through all of the articles, including a FRANKENSTEIN filmbook, this is one terrific issue. Not long after this issue was published, Ace Books released this paperback:

Edited by Forry, this book is chock full of articles about Karloff, many of which originally appeared in the pages of FAMOUS MONSTERS. You better believe I've got this beauty in my collection!
