The Frank 1 uses the same 7 5/8 x 49 box-pressed double corona vitola as original, as well as a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, dual Nicaraguan binders and Nicaraguan fillers. Johnson said that the redux version has a blend that is similar to the original, but did not go into what kind of differences may exist between the two, for instance due to different crops of tobacco being used.
The Monster Series became known for its pre-Halloween release date, with cigars packaged in 13-count boxes designed to look like coffins, limited to just 666 boxes or cigars, and limited to just 13 retailers around the country that were known as the Unlucky 13. The series would go to become an annual release, with each subsequent cigar named for either a classic or modern movie monster. While subsequent releases would retain the 666 coffin-style boxes, Johnson would begin releasing cigars in more traditional-style boxes to meet consumer demand. He has also created a number of extensions to the line, such as the recently released Monster Mash, a sampler of all the previous Monster releases in a slightly shorter vitola than the original, which also included a new release known as the Tatuaje Creature. There has also been the Pudgy Monsters, Little Monsters, and a trio of versions under the name Skinny Monsters, including the Skinny Monsters Lanceros and Skinny Monsters Cazadores.
