In addition, the magazine published comic strips, articles on genre television shows, book reviews, art, and other related items. This inaugural issue has articles on Universal's Mummy series, The Time Machine, Jack the Ripper, Frankenstein 1970, The Mysterians, and The Pit and the Pendulum. Also includes: "Zacherley's Wife Contest" and "The Boris Karloff Story." Cover art by Larry Ivie. Cover price $0.35.
