POLLEN’S WOMEN: THE ART OF SAMSON POLLEN...

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 16:18:40 PST

I’m very happy to announce the release of POLLEN’S WOMEN: THE ART OF SAMSON POLLEN, the latest book in the Men’s Adventure Library series that I co-edit and publish with Wyatt Doyle, via his New Texture imprint. Samson Pollen is one of the great grandmasters of illustration art used for stories published in men’s adventure magazines (MAMs) from the mid-1950s to the mid-1970s. POLLEN’S WOMEN is a deluxe, full-color, hardcover that features photos of dozens of Sam’s original MAM paintings...

Talking with Eva Lynd about Steve Holland, Al Rossi, Richard Deming’s “KILL AND RUN NUDE” and more...

Several years ago, I had the good fortune of becoming friends with Eva Lynd. As I’ve noted in previous posts on this blog, Eva worked as an actress in a number of TV shows in the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s, including THE STEVE ALLEN SHOW, THE GARRY MOORE SHOW, THE THIN MAN, PETER GUNN, THE TEXAN, HOGANS HEROES and CAGNEY & LACEY. She appeared in many plays and several movies, including the cult films THE HYPNOTIC EYE and THAT LADY FROM PEKING, and in TV commercials (most notably as the...

Ho! Ho! Ho! Men’s adventure magazines style…

Sat, 23 Dec 2017 12:00:28 PST

Most of the more than 160 different men’s adventure magazines published from the late 1940s to the mid-1970s never featured holiday-themed covers for Christmas or any other holidays. I guess most MAM editors thought holiday covers would be out-of-sync with the manly image of their mags. There are a few notable exceptions. Some issues of the top-tier, high-circulation MAMs ARGOSY and TRUE have covers that use either Christmas-themed cover paintings or photographs. But I have often...

Q&A with Fanzine Publisher Justin Marriott...

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 20:01:02 PST

EDITOR’S NOTE: I first learned about vintage paperback fanzine publisher Justin Marriott from my friend writer, editor and action/adventure media maven Paul Bishop (whose latest book is 52 WEEKS • 52 WESTERN NOVELS, a cool, lushly-illustrated guide to classic and new Western novels). Paul posted an interview he did with Justin on his wide-ranging blog. He also posted news about the availability of Justin’s newest fanzines in two of my favorite Facebook groups, the Men's Adventure Paperbacks...

Funny text and image juxtapositions on “stripped” men’s adventure magazine covers…

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 05:33:38 PDT

I’d planned to take a few weeks off in September, but when Hurricane Irma hit the island where I live in the Florida Keys, it led to a much longer hiatus in posts on this blog than I expected. I had no internet connection for weeks and, as I write this, I’m still living in a temporary rental home on the mainland. The good news is that my wife and I, and our three dogs and four cats are all OK. The damage to our house is fixable and my MAM collection is intact. This week, my brain started...
