Men's adventure magazines in postwar America : the Rich Oberg collection - Max Allan Collins, George Hagenauer, Steven Heller, Rich Oberg Let's get down to business. This is largely a collection of pulp covers with art depicting attrative women in distress (and torn clothing!) It's a bit of naughty good fun and there are some really good Rafael Desoto pieces in it, as well as some that are laughable. One memorable cover featured a man and a women getting attacked by snapping turtles!

I found this gem on the bargain table at Barnes and Noble while my girlfriend and I were waiting for a table to open up at the California Pizza Kitchen next door. It's been a worthwhile purchase. The cover said "Raped in a black wave of terror!" I'd have been a fool not to buy it and so would you.
