Vinyl Dynamite #28: Count Morbida's Chamber of Horrors

Dynamite Magazine

I've talked about Dynamite magazine on more than one occasion, so I'll refrain from tripping down memory lane this time.  I will mention once again, to emphasize my point, that it was all about the monsters for kids back in the 70s.  Anything with a wolfman or vampire on it was very likely going to have a kid begging for it.  Hence, Frankenberry cereal, Cracked Magazine monster issues, and the tons of other toys out there to satisify the 70s child's insatiable appetite for monsters.

Dynamite Magazine

Dynamite was amazingly adept at tapping in the psyche of the 70s kid, so they naturally threw in a few monsters.  In one issue, the magazine offered one of those flimsy albums inside - the kind that would sometimes come in cereal boxes.  Someone out there (God bless you, whoever you are) managed to save his and slap it on the internets.  Here it is, in all its glory, "Count Morbida's Chamber of Horrors"

  1. I should scan some of my Dynamite mags. Though I don't seem to have any horror themed ones left.

  2. Wow- I had both issues shown. It's been 30 years since I saw them; this really brought a blast from the past... Don't think it was a particular favourite; certainly wouldn't have taken me away from my Signet collection of MADs for a moment.
