Cover Art Reference #3

Famous Monsters no. 13

That weird looking Gogos Frankenstein! Not from any movie, he was a guy in a Frankie costume used to promote the first issue at a local newsstand. Here are a couple of photos, with Warren on the right in photo number 2.

The cover art reference shot was used in an ad for the FM Club, in early issues.

Basil Gogos' original painting.


  1. Wow, I'd never seen that ad before. I assumed Gogos did the painting from his imagination. I guess you learn something new every day. Thanks for sharing that.

  2. Gogos hated that painting and wouldn't let it appear in his book.
