Quote:His new versions of the magazine are a great combination of vintage monster mags and CoF look.
Quote:Couldn't agree more. I think he does a super job. Unfortunately he does not have the same inspired, eclectic and sometimes eccentric band of contributors to draw on as was the case in CTB's day. So the content of today's product, while solid, is somewhat less stimulating than was the case in the late '60s/early '70s.
Quote:Might sound like I'm damning Dennis with faint praise but that's not my intent. The original CoF was sui generis -- an impossibly original publication that would be very hard to duplicate.

Quote:Wouldn't have become interested in the genre if it hadn't been for FJA and Famous Monsters. But I never would have honed what few critical faculties I possess if it hadn't been for CTB and Castle of Frankenstein ...

Quote:Douglas wrote most of the book around 1948 as a kid, added a few things to it, and then had it published as it was in the sixties. Considering that the book was written long before the video age, I think he did a nice job. And he did update it in the early nineties and correct the errors.

Quote:I know I owe my initial interest in seeking out CITIZEN KANE to CoF -- this was long before the "greatest film ever made" sawhorse came into being.
