Someone mucked with the logo again for FAMOUS MONSTERS #119. This abomination may even be worse than the one that appeared on the cover of issue #100. I don't know why someone (Jim Warren? Forry?) felt the need to change one of the most distinctive magazine logos ever but they did so at least twice during the magazine's first run.

The cover images on this issue are from a variety of Hammer horror films and the fact that it's billed as a "100 Page Super Spooktacular Issue" clues me in that's it's an all reprint annual issue (what Forry used to lovingly refer to as a "Fearbook" rather than a "Yearbook"). Features include the usual suspects: Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Christopher Lee, Dinosaurs and NIGHT OF THE BLOOD BEAST (!?).
