GRIDIRON GANG
Today is not just any given Sunday.

It’s Super Bowl time again in the U.S., and as we did in 2009 and 2010, today we’re commemorating the occasion. This time we have a selection of five sports covers from acclaimed pulp artist George Gross. They were published between 1940 and 1951, and are alll college themed. No surprise there—collegiate ball ruled back then. But not today. Today the NFL is America’s passion, and Super Bowl Sunday is the day when even non football fans turn their attention to the sport. After revealing that we once lived in the Bay Area, is there any doubt who we’re picking to win tonight? That’s right—Baltimore in a walk. Just kidding. Chesapeake Bay has its charms, but when we say Bay Area we mean the one and only San Francisco Bay. So we’re backing the Niners, if for no other reason than football may be watching the emergence of a once-in-a-generation talent in Colin Kaepernick. If that’s the case, he can certainly announce his arrival big time with a Super Bowl victory. Final score: San Fran 24—Baltimore 20.

Update: Hey, we're writers, not seers of the future. If we actually knew who would win we'd be as famous as Criswell. At least it was a decent game .

DESPERATE CRAVING
Well, I need a man, but I guess you’ll have to do.

This is a brilliant cover for Joan Sherman’s, aka Erolie Pearl Gaddis Dern’s Suzy Needs a Man, published 1950. Dern was an extremely prolific author who between 1934 and 1966 wrote under many names, producing mostly romances, nurse novels, and light sleaze. The art here is by the great George Gross, who painted hundreds of covers for every pulp imprint from Detective Book Magazine to Football Stories. We’ll get back to Gross a bit later, but in the meantime you can see more of his work here.

1987—Radiation Accident in Brazil
Two squatters find a container of radioactive cesium chloride in an abandoned hospital in Goiânia, Brazil. When the shielding window is opened, the bright blue cesium becomes visible, which lures many people to handle the object. In the end forty-six people are contaminated, resulting in illnesses, amputations, and deaths, including that of a 6-year-old girl whose body is so toxic it is buried in a lead coffin sealed in concrete.
