This metal-man has a ray gun, shoots lasers out of his eyes, and is strong enough to abduct a scantily-clad human female with only his left arm. Pretty dangerous! He’s the creation of Earle Bergey for the cover of the January 1950 issue of Startling Stories. Meanwhile the interior has an illustration that is uncredited as far as I can tell, and is quite voeyeristic (who’s looking through what?). It’s proportions are such that, properly reduced, it too might make a nifty bookmakr.
Just a bit more Harold McCauley pulp illustration. Boy are we going to be sorry when oxygen tanks gain sentience.
This painting graced the cover of the January 1956 issue of Imaginative Tales.
Both versions of the illustration are courtesy of this post at Pulp Covers. The entire issue can be downloaded from or read at the Internet Archive. It’s pretty pulpy: I counted I think four interior illustrations of helpless dames needing rescue from manly sci-fi heroes. But at least one illustration, sadly uncredited, does seem very Erotic Mad Science:
It illustrates a story by Richard O. Lewis, “Practical Joke.” The promo copy:
Hypnotapes were a proven boon to industry, where difficult problems could be experienced and solved vicariously. But to marriage — sheer chaos!
These animations have been reblogged from this 12 July 2015 post at Infernal Wonders. Although I am not entirely certain, I think they probably represent an animated sequence from a game called Viper RSR, made by the now-defunct Japanese erotic games company Sogna. There’s an image gallery (possibly not from the same game) here.
This image is reblogged from this 5 July 2015 post at Infernal Wonders. I’m not sure what’s supposed to be going on here, but it seems to involve a lot of distress. The original provenance of the illustration is unknown to me, unfortunately.
