Sam Irvin, director of such genre films as Oblivion (1994) and Elvira’s Haunted Hills (2001), has been a monster kid since childhood. He’s loved Frankenstein: The True Story (1973) since it first aired on NBC television and, in 2017, he wrote an incredible article that became the entire 38th issue of Little Shoppe of Horrors. “The Epic Untold Saga Behind Frankenstein: The True Story” is more than 100 pages of monster goodness and I highly recommend you not only vote for it but that you also add the magazine to your collection. Visit their website and order it today!
And no magazine is complete without an amazing cover to help tell the story. In this case, you’re receiving an amazing piece of art from Mark Maddox. You’ll find his work everywhere, from Doctor Who Magazine to Video Watchdog. He’s actually nominated for three covers this year. In addition to Little Shoppe of Horrors #38, you’ll find his work on Mad Scientist #32 and Screem #34. Finally, let’s all write-in Mark in the Best Artist of 2017 category as he had a phenomenal year! Then, check out his website for more of his amazing work.
