UNHAPPILY CARRIED
For better or worse, in sickness and health, women in pulp don’t have a heck of a lot of choice about it.
 
Pulp is a place where the men are decisive and the women are as light as feathers. We’ve gotten together a collection of paperback covers featuring women being spirited away to places unknown, usually unconscious, by men and things that are less than men. You have art from Harry Schaare, Saul Levine, Harry Barton, Alain Gourdon, aka Aslan, and others.

A HELLO TO ARMS
Now where on Earth did that sneaky octopus get off to?

Stud boy there is gonna need a bigger knife. Not only that—he needs peripheral vision, better hearing, and a little something called a sixth sense. We've talked before about cover artists taking liberties with classic literature, but in this case the cover is accurate—Victor Hugo's hero Gilliat does indeed fight a giant octopus. Hugo even painted the octopus in question himself, which you see below. As to whether Gilliat survives his deadly encounter, let's just say he really developed a taste for tako sashimi.

SWEET & LOLLO
Sometimes you have a hunch things won't work out.

This poster is for the German version of the French film Notre Dame de Paris, based upon Victor Hugo’s tragic masterpiece, with Anthony Quinn as Quasimodo and Gina Lollobrigida as Esmeralda. While the film isn’t what you’d call pulp, the promo art has all the elements, and Lollobrigida is a personage who crossed paths with some important figures, including Howard Hughes and Fidel Castro. In her day, she was so famous she was immortalized on episodes of both The Flintstones and The Jetsons, as, respectively, Gina Load-O’Bricks and Gina Lollojupiter. But here’s what we like best about La Lollo: there’s a type of lettuce named after her. Der Glöckner von Notre Dame premiered in West Germany today in 1957.
