Men's adventure magazines were a form of pulp publishing which flourished in 1950s and 1960s America, pandering to the cruelty and lust of young men with luridly illustrated stories of war, sleaze and savagery. They arose partly in response to the inauguration of the Comics Code in 1954, as a way of circumventing censorship by presenting material in a new, "adults-only" format.

The prime years of the men's adventure magazine unleashed a visual and verbal deluge of exposed and tormented flesh, bloody mayhem and sexual delinquency, representing a unique cultural phenomenon in US publishing and art. This collects prime examples of text and artwork from a range of men's adventure magazines published during the peak years.

The book is divided into two main sections: Features includes a selection of sensationalistic, semi-factual confessions and case histories on such subjects as Nazi doctors, tortures of the Spanish Inquisition, cannibal serial killers, vice, juvenile delinquency and other aberrations; and Fiction collects numerous examples of garishly illustrated short pulp fiction, with categories including war, white slavery, Nazi horror, jungle savagery, Red menace, Devil worship, torture, sadism and erotic carnage!

35 features and stories, with more than 80 illustrations, and 16 pages of full color, with work, most of it very high quality, by such classic pulp artists as Norm Eastman, Norman Saunders and John Duillo. Features and stories include: The Cannibal Butcher Of Hanover; A Soft White Throat For The Devil's Hangman; Tortured Nudes For The Devil's Charnel House; Soft Brides For The Hideous Rites of The Damned; Nude Nurses For The Beasts of Bushido; Doomed Nudes In The Circus of Horror; Torture Trap of The Nympho Schoolgirls; Prison Break From Chawcagee Hell Hole; and many others! Weird and wild stuff!
