- Full Description
Comic book covers, including The Crypt of Terror and Weird Science from EC, Startling Terror Tales from Star, a rare Ghost pulp cover and another from Startling, True Detective and Real Detective, the men's magazines Manhood and Real Men--and even three Popular Science. Don't laugh, these often had great sci-fi style covers of futuristic inventions like stream-lined hovercraft and deep sea vehicles!
"Pulp fiction is a term used to describe a huge amount of creative writing in the early 1900s. Termed "pulp" because of the low quality paper used between the covers which themselves were beautifully decorated, many times with lurid portraits of pretty women. Low prices drew in many working-class young adults and teenagers, who could not otherwise afford some of the pricier magazines of the day. Popular genres were adventure, detectives, fantasy, mystery, science fiction and weird."
