WHILE WE'RE WALLOWING IN THE 1970s, how about unearthing that bi-weekly horror newspaper called THE MONSTER TIMES. Published every 2 weeks during its first couple years and then monthly later on, THE MONSTER TIMES was a newspaper about horror and science fiction films, tv and comic books published from 1972 until it gasped it's last in 1976. It was meant as something as a competitor to FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND magazine but really they were two different beasts. Here are a couple covers and back cover ads from some of my crumbly copies in the vault. Remember these newspapers are just that -- newspapers -- and not only are they too big to fit in my scanner when unfolded, they are also brittle as all hell. I love you but I'm not gonna destroy them just for a blog. Sorry. But here are some glimpses of that peculiar 70's animal: the bi-weekly monster newspaper THE MONSTER TIMES.
