Sprocket Monsters... Re-Covered!

Here is the new book!  It's a fond remembrance of watching 8mm versions of our favorite monster movies, liberally and lovingly illustrated with pictures of the boxes and the posters some of the boxes were based on.  It's comic book sized.  It's more of a special edition of Xenorama than an actual new issue, so it doesn't get it's own number.  At least at this point in time.  Perhaps if this one is popular enough I'll do a "foreign versions" edition.

I got the idea for this when I wrote my article "Attack of the Sprocket Monsters" for last years Japanese Giants version of Famous Monsters of Filmland, and a slight conversation with a friend of mine talking about the differences between the boxes and posters.  That was all the inspiration I needed!  It features many of the greatest monsters of all time, Godzilla, Rodan, the Creature and more!

It's all available here!  If you order from that form, use the code 6C472NZU for a ten percent (10%) discount.
