Growing up with magazines like Famous Monster Of Filmland, I was exposed to many articles and fantastic photos of ghouls gone by, but I think it was the ads in this magazine and others that really provided my education. Thinking about it, it was via those ads that I was first introduced to names like H.P. Lovecraft and Ray Bradbury. I'm sure the first time I ever saw an EC Comics cover was in an ad for some posters.
While I seldom had the funds to purchase many of these wonders, I knew where to look for my shudders because of these ads.
