2008 Halloween Countdown 17: The Elvira Examiner Volume III

In 1987, I finally joined the Elvira Fan Club. One of the items that I received was volume III of The Elvira Examiner. This edition features articles, comic strips, fan art, pictures of Cassandra Peterson with and without the Elvira make up, letters and horrorscope. This is the only newsletter that I received since I never renewed my membership.

I found the following picture of The Elvira Examiner from the 1990s on eBay (I'm so tempted to bid on it). Notice that the header has a picture of the Mistress of the Dark instead of a drawn figure and the paper is white instead of brownish.

Very cool. Nice post. I imagine your countdown is going to become more arcane as Halloween approaches. Looking forward to it!
