Famous Monsters of Filmland #251 Previews at Famous Monsters Convention [July 9-11]

Famous Monsters of Filmland is proud to announce the official launch date for the historic Famous Monsters of Filmland Issue #251! The collectable magazine will preview at the official Famous Monsters Convention, held in Indianapolis, Indiana, July 9-11, 2010.

Thomas Jane (The Mist, The Punisher), as well as Derek Mears and additional cast members from this summer's 20th Century Fox release Predators, will be appearing live and in person. We are also thrilled to present a Night Of The Living Dead reunion, featuring eight original cast members, and a Nightmare on Elm Street series reunion with stars Heather Langenkamp and Mark Patton.

Horror legends Tom Savini, Bill Moseley, and Herschell Gordon Lewis will also be in attendance to celebrate this memorable FM launch. A complete guestlist can be found at www.famousmonstersconvention.com.

We're eager to meet the demand for the event, so to accomodate all our potential guests, Famous Monsters has secured additional convention floor space for this monstrous event.

Along with the special guests and screenings, Friday night's VIP Blood Red Pool Party and the Beauty Pageant sponsored by Girls and Corpses are just a few of the highlights for the weekend. The winner of the beauty pageant will receive a photo spread in an upcoming issue of both Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine and Girls and Corpses magazine!

The Famous Monsters Convention will be held at the Wyndham Indianapolis West, located at 2544 Executive Drive, Indianapolis, IN. Ticket pricing, hotel accommodations, a complete guestlist, and a schedule of events are all available at www.famousmonstersconvention.com.

New Happenings

Greetings all,

I just wanted to swing by and let everyone know what’s going on in the Famous Monsters universe. The magazine (issue 251, published by indie comic giant IDW) has officially gone on pre-sale over at our store (www.captainco.com ). We’ve got the Captain Company exclusive (yup, we secured the name and are changing the logos and URL’s this week) FM 251 Basil Gogos variant cover. It’s got old school (Karl Freund) and new school (Predators, Charlain Harris) horror. For the sci-fi and fantasy fans we’ve got a massive Ray Bradbury interview along with a never-before-published story by the man himself, and much, much more- including the last editor’s letter written by Forry to be included in the magazine when it returned, as he always knew it would. The mag is also going to be available with the Richard Corben/Nosferatu primary cover and the William Stout/Frankenstein comic shop incentive cover.

In celebration of the magazine release we’re also holding the FM Con in Indianapolis, IN July 9-11. We’re going to have reunions for Dawn/Day of the Dead, Night of the Living Dead, Return of the Living Dead, The Lost Boys with a tribute to Corey Haim, Thomas Jane and Tim Bradstreet talking movies and their comics company, pre-sale of issue 251 with an exclusive convention cover, a VIP party featuring an amazing (and still top secret) guest, Charles Band Road Show, a Repo! screening with writer/creator Terrence Zdunich sitting right along with you and taking questions, screenings of unreleased and independent horror films, panels with many of the guests, tattoo contest, a beauty contest to find our FM girl who will then get a feature spread in the Halloween issue, and too much more to list. Details are over at www.famousmonstersconvention.com. Also be sure to check out www.facebook.com/fmconvention. If you want to attend or are a vendor looking for a booth, check it out soon before the early sale period closes and prices go up.

We get a lot of questions pertaining to the disappearance of issue 250. Many people ordered 250 through the previous owners of FM but had never received it. We have remedied that problem. We will be taking over the production and printing of issue 250. For all the sordid details and how to get your copy if you had ordered it already, head on over to our forums here: http://famousmonstersoffilmlandforum...php?topic=27.0

FM is also working its way through the social media. To get a somewhat distilled version of the website and get announcements as they go out www.facebook.com/FMOFL is where you need to be. Looking for discounts to our store and special giveaways? www.twitter.com/FMOF is where to find them.

The response has been great so far and we appreciate all the support. Many thanks from all of us. If you’ve got questions or comments you want answered quickly, head on over the Facebook page. We’ve usually got that monitored most of the day. Thanks again,

FM Crew
