MALE PRIVILEGE
They reserve the right to kill everything in sight.


It's murder and mayhem in this issue of Male published this month in 1958. The carnage and gunplay span the Wild West era to World War II, and France to Xinjiang, China, with cheesecake model Diana Crawford thrown in to break up the monotony. The cover is an atypical effort from George Gross, and the interior art is by the always excellent Charles Copeland, along with Brendon Lynch, John Leone, Arthur De Kuh, and others.

Vintage Pulp Jan 14 2016
U.S. MALE
Delivering thrills all year round.


Stan Borack painted the cover of this issue of Male from January 1958, and the interior art comes from Samson Pollen, Bob Schultz, John Leone, James Bama, Bob Stanley, John Kuller, and Tom Ryan. Not a slouch in the bunch. The magazine contains a preview of Shane author Jack Schaefer’s novel Company of Cowards, the Civil War tale of a group of Union officers who have all been busted down to the rank of private, but who are formed into a special unit and given a chance to earn back their honor. That chance takes them into Comanche country where they face an assortment of deadly challenges.
 
Also in this issue you get famed model Diane Webber/Marguerite Empey—who we’ve been seeing a lot of recently—doing a nice photo feature and complaining that since being elected Queen of the Nudists by a national sunbathing association all anyone wants to talk about is her naked lifestyle. But we think that’s just the editors trying to come up with an angle for the text. Webber was an official advocate of nudist lifestyle and even promoted her special brand of spiritual nudism in television interviews, so we doubt she was fed up with it at this point. The photos were shot by Russ Meyer, and we’re pretty sure they’ve never been on the internet before, which is always a fun moment for us. Please enjoy. Twenty scans below.

STRONG-ARM MEN
Wrong time to ask maybe, but *groan* your skin is so soft I *grunt* simply have to know. What hand cream *snort* do you use?

We really like this December 1955 cover from Man’s Magazine featuring a couple of bears settling their differences over a session of arm wrestling. The art is from John Leone, who did a lot of western and outdoors themed pulp covers before moving on to gallery work. Of course, this piece would have seemed powerfully hetero in its day, but looks perhaps a bit more sexually ambiguous now. Or is it just us? Anyway, we found this scan over at the website menspulpmags.com, and if you haven’t yet checked out their comprehensive pulp collection, you should definitely make time.
