The first item in this month's "Monster Stuff" is this fun book I remember having as a kid! How to Care For Your Monster was a paperback book published by Scholastic Books, and it was written by Norman Bridwell, better known for his Clifford the Big Red Dog books!
Next, a lobby card from How to Make a Monster, which was signed by star Gary Conway, who you'll recall as also starring in Land of the Giants!
Here's a few more lobby cards from that film, and a still below:
Next, we have a lobby card (well, the seller called it that, but it looks like a half-sheet to me) for The Human Duplicators, which I'd imagine was supposed to be about the horrors of cloning, given the "duplicators" part of the title! I've never seen it myself.
Here's a lobby card or another movie I've never seen, The Human Vapor!
Lobby card for one of the many remakes of The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Now, we've got two of the Aurora models of the Hunchback, it's always interesting for me to see how different builders will paint their models slightly differently!
Here's a very lavish program book Universal produced for the Lon Chaney version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame!
Pressbook for The Hypnotic Eye!
An Illustrated History of the Horror Film, this looks like it had been reprinted in a smaller version from the larger hardback. I'd imagine I've read this at some point in my life!
Stills from I Married a Monster From Outer Space, which I haven't seen since I was a teenager!
Lobby cards for I Married a Witch, which was at least one of the inspirations for Bewitched! If you've never seen this one, you should definitely track it down!
Invaders From Mars lobby cards!
Here's a Mexican lobby card from the remake!
Invasion of the Body Snatchers lobby cards!
Invasion of the Saucer Men lobby cards!
The Invisible Boy lobby card! Man, Robby the Robot's career took a turn for the worse after Forbidden Planet, didn't it?
Lobby cards for The Invisible Ghost!
It's a lobby card party this month, isn't it? Here's lobby cards for The Invisible Man!
The Invisible Man glow-in-the-dark T-shirt!
The Invisible Man Returns lobby cards!
The Invisible Ray lobby card!
The Invisible Woman lobby card above, a still below!
Island of Lost Souls lobby cards!
It Came From Beneath the Sea lobby cards!
It Came From Outer Space lobby cards!
It Conquered the World lobby cards! By the way, star Beverly Garland later went on to play Lois Lane's mother in several episodes of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, and also owns and operates a Holiday Inn!
As blurry as this photo was, I had to share this picture of the book James Whale: A New World of Gods and Monsters!
This very cool promotional piece was done for Janos Prohaska, who was known for his creature work on movies and TV shows, including The Outer Limits and Star Trek!
And I think we'll close there for this month!
