Warren Special Edition: The Lord of the Rings Magazine (June, 1979)








Don’t you wish you could thumb through the whole mag, written by the delightfully weird Forrest J. Ackerman? Oh, wait. You can.

If you think the Lord of the Rings “sculpture banks” are an odd choice for merchandise, wait until I post the finger puppets.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: something about the Ringwraiths in that version made them really creepy. Maybe it was the rotoscoped animation, or the twisted way one of them walked when searching for Frodo… either way, they have Jackson’s Nazgul beat all to hell on the creepy-scale!
