From the Introduction --

One Collector’s Story

For me it all began with a revelation. Like many boys my age, I grew up a fan of all things monster and monster related. And being a dinosaur buff, nothing could beat the biggest dinosaur of them all. Sure the Wolf Man or the Creature from the Black Lagoon were cool, but Godzilla was always the best. My friends and I had Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, weekend Creature Features on the local UHF channel, “From Dusk til Dawn” showings at the drive-in, and what seemed like nearly endless visits to the local toy stores and comic book shops to buy more Aurora monster model kits and whatever other goodies I could find. I can still remember the when and where of walking into King’s Department Store and seeing the Godzilla Gang figures for the first time, or turning the aisle at Zayre’s and coming face-to-face with an endcap full of Mattel’s Rodan toys stacked to the ceiling, and even finding the first issue of Marvel’s Godzilla comics and knowing I would now be able to get a monthly fix of the King of the Monsters.
