Interesting articles on the most unusual of subjects. Manhunt is one of the most legendary lurid digests, mirroring the exploitation covers of the 1950s paperbacks. Gamma was an interesting sci-fi digest that began in 1963, exploring new frontiers in fiction. An intimate look at Western Magazine, which began in 1956 and would feature authors like DC Comics icon Gardner Fox, as well as Philip Ketcham, Joseph Chadwick and L.L. Foreman. And guess who was publishing it? Dear old Martin Goodman, Stan Lee's father-in-law and publisher of Timely, Atlas, and Marvel Comics. Nice cover repros.
