- Full Description
Men's adventure magazines were a form of pulp publishing that flourished in 1950s and 1960s America, pandering to young men with luridly illustrated stories of war, sleaze and savagery...and lots and lots of naked or nearly naked women, threatened with unspeakable cruelties. Here are those stories and that artwork, often by creators who went on to illustrious careers.
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, divided into two main sections: Features includes a selection of sensationalistic, semi-factual confessions and case histories on such subjects as rape in Soviet prisons, Hitler's secret sex life, prostitution, the persecution of witches, and other aberrations; and Fiction collects vivid 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.
The book also features numerous examples of interior art from classic men's magazines, and includes 35 features and stories, with more than 50 full-size illustrations, and 16 pages of full color, with work by such classic pulp artists as Norm Eastman, Norman Saunders and John Duillo.
Features and stories include: "I Escaped From The Soviet Hell Camp," "Chained Nudes For The Devil's Dungeon," "Virgin Brides For Satan's Lust Orgies," "Passion Slave Of The Whip Goddess," "Nazi Madhouse Zoo Of Ravaged Women," "1,000 Naked Beauties For The Devil's Plague," and many others.
