I've gotta confess, I'm not impressed by the cover of FAMOUS MONSTERS #84. Sure, it's a cool color photo of Christopher Lee, blood-shot eyes and blood-stained fangs and all, but that's all it is. A color photo. There's no fabulous Basil Gogos artwork, no cover copy to let us know what's inside this issue, no nothing. It's a very generic cover image that could be found on any monster magazine.

Of course, I bought it when it came out and I still have it in my collection. My best guess is that perhaps both Forry and publisher James Warren were up against an impending publication deadline and they had to throw something together at the very last minute. Can any readers confirm or deny my theory? Let me know.
