A lot of magazines stopped publishing in 1958 when distributor American News Company went out of business. Included amongst the casualties is a personal favorite of mine, MONSTERS AND THINGS. Mom wouldn't let me buy it in 1958, no matter how bad a tantrum I threw. I waited 40 years and found a copy. So there, Mom!
This issue, #2, was the last issue. Too bad. Bob Powell cover and illustrations, monster pin-ups, horror comics reprint, and some cool fiction. I still like it.
