Gamera Has Never Looked More Badass Than He Does In This Stunning Art
Charlie Jane Anders wrote:He may not be as famous as Godzilla, but Gamera is still one of the most awesome creatures ever created. And he's celebrating his 50th anniversary this month. To celebrate, Famous Monsters Magazine crafted a new cover by award-winning artist Bob Eggleton. See the whole thing below.

The new issue of FM has a whole tribute to Gamera, as well as a feature on the making of Mad Max: The Road Warrior. You can order the issue or subscribe here. And here's the full cover!

Famous Monsters #289 has some Godzilla stuff in it but it's a $30 Annual...

I saw it in person but I opted to finally pick up Shin Godzilla on BD.

Some unsavory allegations have come out against the late Forrest J Ackerman...

^Yeah, I read that whole thread a few weeks ago. As with other allegations of this type, I'm surprised by how people knew something and have tried to say something but where either not believed or shouted down by those who didn't want to believe. A lot of these facts aren't technically new, instead they've been brought back up and placed together around the new allegation.
