Title: Pulp Magazines and Books: Fantastic Cover Art
Post by: Memphremagog on July 28, 2019, 10:51:17 AM
There was some mighty incredible cover art for those old pulp magazines and books of the bygone era. From the really lurid "women in peril" stuff to monsters from another world and crime stories, the artwork supplied for these things was simply out of this world. Like the poster art of film eras gone by, they dont make them like this anymore. They certainly would not pass the PC culture of today, and this is like looking into another world at times..

If you have a favorite example of this type of cover, please feel free to post it here!  :)

One of my favorite PULP cover subjects is THE SHADOW! There are so many great ones, but this is a favorite.

I have a 2" book shelf brimmed with pulp mags,mostly reprints and pulp/sleaze PB's. For me it is mostly about the great cover art. I have read a few and some of the stories are dreadfully written. Can't go wrong with Weird Menace tho. Hugh B. Cave,Wayne Rogers, Wyatt Blassingame, just to name a few.

Really enjoy all these old pulp titles, especially the “spicy” issues. Some of that material was reprinted a few years ago by Eternity Comics. Also, wasn’t that image of “ This Comic Is Haunted” originally a cover to Skywald’s Psycho magazine?

Psycho #8 (Jose Mirelles cover art):

The photo that the artist modeled his cover on was also used for the DVD case.

Murderous mandrills, conniving call girls, and serial sadists ... a great way to start the new week.
"You can't buy love with murder! page 22". I'll have to ponder that one for a while. I wonder how
many young readers imagined themselves rescuing that bound brunette on the "Spicy Mystery"
cover. Me? I'd need to think about that, too! >:D

Give me a Margaret Brundage woman, any day!

Did Margaret Brundage render any of the covers posted in this thread?

Look for Weird Tales covers. You should be able to spot her style. The one with the vampire on this page is hers. I don't think the other one is, though.

Just flipping through the other pages, most of the Weird Tales covers are hers. There's also a lot of repeats in this thread!  ;D

Looking at it now I think the first Weird Tales cover on page 6 may be hers as well:

The "girl wrestlers" I've seen look a lot more like the boy wrestlers.

I would have a hard time reading these books.  I can't seem to get past the covers.

They certainly knew how to entice the reader back then, the covers were amazing!

I have a copy of the Planet Stories shown above. After seeing the post I dug it out. There’s a small Fiction House  logo on the cover and  I always thought these were published by Fiction House.  However, the the copyright says Love Romances Publishing? I imagine they were a branch of Fiction House or visa versa. Anyone know for sure?
The two interior artists are Meilink and A. McWilliams. I’m not familiar with either of them. Are the names pen names? Anybody a pulp expert on this thread?

Love Romances was a subsidiary company of Fiction House.

Alden McWilliams and William Meilink are the artist's real names.
