FAMOUS MONSTERS #272 RICHARD MATHESON (DIAMOND/SUBSCRIBER)

The upcoming issue of Famous Monsters will be a tribute to a giant in science
fiction, Richard Matheson. Yes, he’s the guy who wrote that famous episode of The Twilight Zone with William Shatner freaking out at seeing a gremlin on the wing of the plane he’s on, “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet.” He was a prolific writer and wrote one of my favorites, BID TIME RETURN, which became the movie, SOMEWHERE IN TIME, starring Christopher Reeve.

More details from FAMOUS MONSTERS follow:

It’s cover reveal time again! We have two outstanding works for you this issue: RICHARD MATHESON (subscriber cover) by Simon Thorpe, and HISTORY OF SCI-FI (newsstand cover) by Jason Edmiston.

With the passing of Richard Matheson, the world loses one its last titans. From literary works and films like I AM LEGEND, A STIR OF ECHOES, HELL HOUSE, and TV classics like William Shatner’s episodes of THE TWILIGHT ZONE and Steven Spielberg’s breakout hit, DUEL, Matheson was a writer who could work brilliantly in any medium. 272 will look at his life, work, and influence, and will include a special, exclusive memorial from his family-including his son-acclaimed author and screenwriter Richard Christian Matheson. 272 will also take a look at the long and wonderful history of Sci-Fi literature. Our founding editor wasn’t nicknamed “Mr. Sci-Fi” for nothing. In honor of his greatest love, we’ll hit the high points and see how it all evolved from Wells to Asimov to Crichton and beyond.
