DECEMBER 2013 UPDATE!: Four new regular issues (252, 253, 269 & 270) and three special issues (Famous Monsters: Full Moon 001, Retro Issue 070 & Retro Issue 071) have been added to DVD #03 raising the total number of issues in this collection to 205! If you have already purchased this set prior to the update, you can request only the third DVD for $8.00, plus shipping.
From Warren Publishing, this is probably their most (in)famous and popular series. Each edition is complete, with no missing story pages. Every magazine includes the original vintage advertisement pages. Included in this collection are the following 189 regular issues:
The following special edition issues are also included:
1969 Fear Book
1972 Fear Book

Fear Book for 1970

World's First Famous Monsters Convention Program (1974)
Issues #070-079 do not exist. Warren Publishing created a magazine called "Monster World" that lasted for ten issues. It was almost identical to Famous Monsters, but with additional features. Warren now considers the 10-issue run of "Monster World" as the missing issues of Famous Monsters, which causes some confusion to collectors trying to complete the series. NOTE: The complete run of "Monster World" is also available in my store.
This set will be updated as I locate back issues that are complete and off good quality for scanning. It is my intention to eventually make the entire collection available (if possible).
This entire collection is here on three DVD-ROMs!
All editions are scanned into Adobe Acrobat Reader (.pdf) format, and are of excellent quality. Read them on your computer screen, ebook reader, or print the pages to make your own hard copies! You will never find a more complete collection anywhere!
Each disc comes with a full-color label, and is shipped in a plastic disc keeper in a padded envelope for added protection. First Class shipping upon receipt of payment. Combine sets at no additional shipping charge! NOTE: Will trade complete sets for unopened die-cast movie & TV vehicles!
An absolute must-have for any horror magazine collector or sci-fi & fantasy fan! Ask me about my other magazine collections.
