If somebody had told me back when I was a boy that I would one day wish I could’ve been born much earlier in the 20th century than I was, just so I’d have had the opportunity to purchase and collect men’s adventure magazines in their skin-and-sin heyday, I would undoubtedly have scoffed at the suggestion.
But some of the illustrated features from those publications, revisited recently in the blogs Retrospace and Men’s Pulp Mags, certainly make me wish I could pick up the issues from my local newsstand and read through them. Even though many of the stories were pretty outrageous--as is evident from their headlines.
Anybody have a time machine handy?
