Please, please, let me choose more than 1!!!



I would normally say #56 Frankenstein but looking at all of these together (not to mention some of the other covers posted) it really is a hard choice.  #58 The Mummy is just incredible all those nooks and crannies in the face!!  Then you look at #99 with that detail in the hair, the same with #62 Mr. Hyde just incredible attention to detail.  I guess what I'm saying is any Gogo's cover shares the #1 spot on my list!!!

These are my two favorite covers. Although Gogos is by far my favorite overall FM artist, I've always loved the cover of #94 by Sanjulian.

Some nice covers to be sure but C'mon. THIS is THE cover



It never happened but could you imagine an 8 min long (ala the modern action films) battle between these 2 just snarling and beating the crap out of each other. Biting ,tree stumps tossed, chases thru the woods stalking each other, MOns-teers droool. Yea thats what ahs talkin about.

Hey WL, I've always admired that cover too. It's one of those that made a bigger impression than the film itself. (Don't get me wrong, Frankenstein meets the Wolfman rocks!)

#103, for sure, that beautiful Gogos of the Lagoon Creature.  It just says "dive into a world of monsters!" for me.  I love A LOT of the covers.  But that one is my fave...plus, we also got to see it as puzzle, and as one of those glow-in-the-dark Alpha Bits posters, and maybe as some other stuff.  That painting got around!

Wow!! I didn't know Kerry Gammill was in the house!! I have enjoyed your work since the Marvel days. I think I saw some spot illos you did in one of Marvel's monster mags back in the day. Your Gogos book was phenomenal as well.

As much as I love Basil's work, Sanjulian is awesome! I took that very same Famous Monsters all the way to Seattle to have him sign it last year. He didn't have a translator, but I was able to shake his hand and tell him what I thought of his work. Nice man.
