Dark Shadows at 48

DARK SHADOWS went on the air 48 years ago today. Barnabas Collins wouldn't show up for a while but when eh did the show took off to find a unique niche among television soap operas. It was covered in FAMOUS MONSTERS, merchandised in a long-running series of paperbacks but also covered monthly in SIXTEEN, SPEC, FAVE and TIGER BEAT, since tweens and teens--myself included-- became its primary audience! There were also toys, games, models and, of course, two feature films at the time!
