- Full Description
I Watched Them Eat Me Alive is the first installment of The Men's Adventure Library Journal, a series focusing on specific facets of the vintage men's adventure magazines stories, artwork, and history. Dedicated to exploring the lost world of vintage men’s adventure magazines,it's all about creatures, all man-eaters, from ants to crabs to sharks, piranhas, wild boars, gorillas, tigers, weasels, snakes...whether you are a handsome he-man or a barely-dressed young lady, this critters are out to haunt your dreams.
The Men’s Adventure Library chronicles the mags’ three decades on American newsstands, from the early 1950s through the mid-1970s. Mixing elements from many sources—early pulp fiction, detective stories and true crime, mystery and noir films, exotic travel magazines, celebrity scandal rags and bachelor mags—they ratcheted up the tension and amped up the testosterone to create explosive, entertaining, and often outrageous reading for millions of American men. Though long extinct and mostly unseen for generations, their pervasive influence continues to shape some of the most popular and enduring pop culture tropes and trends.
Curated by historian/collector Robert Deis and writer Wyatt Doyle, with lots of anecdotes, notes on the various artists, and long excerpts from several stories.
The Men’s Adventure Library reprints and provides context for classic stories and artwork drawn from the mags’ rich history of gonzo pulp, with releases available in full-color trade paperback and deluxe, expanded hardcover editions. Each volume is a vivid reminder that these bizarre magazines were totally outrageous, sometimes extremely cool, unexpectedly influential, and still pack a bare-knuckle punch. Read ’em all…if you’ve got the guts!
This series has very limited distribution and is not available in most outlets.
