The world’s oldest and best-selling monster fan magazine, FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND, is preparing to launch its new Japanese Monster and pop culture magazine, MONSTER ATTACK TEAM. MAT was THE foremost Daikaiju (giant Japanese beasts) and Japanese Sci-Fi fanzine in the US and is now teaming with FM to make their mainstream debut. This semi-annual publication will focus on everything from GODZILLA, ULTRAMAN, and KAMEN RIDER to Japanese rock bands, anime/manga, art, and more. The premiere is jam-packed with exclusives like a chat with the original Godzilla, HARUO NAKAJIMA, a look at the classic Japanese heavy metal scene, exclusive features on the new KYORYUGER and SPACE SHERIFF GAVAN projects, a review of the latest ULTRAMAN film, and many other classic and contemporary exclusives. The cover features the new KYORYUGER character and SPACE SHERIFF GAVAN painted by FM artist Bob Eggleton (JIMMY NEUTRON), with GODZILLA v. MECHAGODZILLA interior cutout by Matt Frank (GODZILLA LEGENDS).
