Tumblr favorite #2785: I guess I’ll never understand space costumes

My original tumblr post was here. This is the December 1950 cover of Out of this World Adventures, a pulp magazine that was edited by Donald A. Wolheim and appears to have only had two issues; the ISFDB entry for the magazine is here. I found the cover tweeted by Victor M. Luoma. I’ve been unable to ascertain the identity of the artist, but I did find a larger version of the same image at Retrospace.

Tumblr favorite #2780: Venus enslaved!

My original tumblr post was here.

Tumblr favorite #2771: Walter Popp, pulpist

My original tumblr post was here, from a tweet by 1whoknewcthulhu. There is a gallery of pulp and men’s magazine art by Walter Popp here which I strongly encourage you to visit. If you don’t thrill to a piece illustrating “Italian Nudist Girls Who Knocked Out Germany’s Underground Tank Depot,” perhaps you should check yourself for a pulse, just to be sure.

Tumblr favorite #2758: Shocked photographer


My original tumblr post was here. I reblogged the image from this tweet with the explanatory text “Tweeted by Retro Ninja ‏@Nero222.” What the photographer is so shocked at I am uncertain, though I think it would be cool mad science if you had a camera that made the model from the image, rather than the other way round. As it is, this appears to be an example of Mexican pulp art.
