Horror & Slasher Flick Comics Tribute - Freddy Krueger's Nightmare on Elm Street Magazine Marvel

8 posts in this topic

Thought that this was an important thread to create. I'm definitely a product of the slasher flick. A little younger than many others that got to pick up early FM's and Warren's off the shelves, but none the less, still molded by horror.


Since Horror/Monsters were the first real genre to migrate to the Magazine format due to the comic code, it definitely paved the way for even the slasher flicks of the 70's and 80's till present.


So I'll start this off by posting the pretty tough to find Nightmare on Elm Street Magazine Mini-Series that Marvel put out in 1989. This set was unfortunately ended short at 2 issues. They even had the cover for Issue #3 in the 2nd issue, but just pulled the plug. Issue #2 I believe had a low print run, for it is much more tough to find than the 1st issue. And would make sense if the series was not doing well after the 1st issues sells.


Both of these books were blessed with Jusko painted covers cloud9.gif And I think that he truly did them justice....especially this first issue.




The Back cover to Issue #2 had a really sweet Sam Keith B&W Pencil of the Nightmare master Himself...




And the never printed Cover to the 3rd issue that was reviewed in Issue #2
