American Gothic Press, founded in 2015, is the comic book publishing imprint of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine.
Famous Monsters (est. 1958) was the first entertainment fan magazine of its kind. Editor Forrest J Ackerman’s original black and white publication acted as solace and inspiration for an entire generation of genre filmmakers. Ackerman also co-created one of the most enduring comic book heroes of all time — the seductive Vampirella.
American Gothic Press marks Famous Monsters’ journey back to the creation of new worlds and original characters, as well as a means for a new generation of storytellers to publish quality, visionary genre content. Our creators include up and coming talent, established industry veterans, and celebrity storytellers. Though our affiliate company covers mainly horror and science fiction, AGP is not limited to genre categories, choosing instead to embody the essence of “gothic” as timeless story structures rooted in legend and lore.
With each new partnership and publication, AGP keeps the spirit of imaginative storytelling alive and well beyond the pages that an entertainment magazine can provide. We hope the monster kids will join us.
