ADVENTURE'S END
The last dangerous days.


Above, the cover and assorted interior scans from Man's Adventure of March 1971, a later issue with a cover seemingly put together from two separate pieces of art, both uncredited. We've seen no issues of this magazine dated later than above, so we're thinking it went under around this time. Normally these magazines increased their focus on nude models as they neared the end, but this one seems to keep the normal ratio, as editors offer up skin and sin, but substantially more literary fact and fiction. Interestingly there are no cartoons. Probably the cartoonists were ditched to save money. On another note, did you see the truly tragic instance of ’70s male fashion in the Eleganza ad? What can you say about something like that but wow? See a previous issue of Man's Adventure here.

THE EAGLES HAVE VOTED
Representative democracy in action.


Nature-attacks-man covers are commonplace on men’s adventure magazines, and we’ve seen virtually every species in the animal kingdom get their revenge eventually. Today it’s the eagles’ turn thanks to this November 1957 issue of Man’s Adventure with art by Clarence Doore. What would be nice is if there was a piece of fiction to go along with this striking painting but there isn’t. So we’ll make one up: 

It was a tough call for the eagles. Some pointed out that humans don’t generally hunt or eat eagles, and many agreed that this fact was in man’s favor. Plus they put us on their coins, some noted, which is a nice tribute. But others said it isn’t about only us raptors, but rather all the birds—our brethren the turkeys, the ducks, and especially the chickens, those most hapless of fowl. Though the few of us who’ve had a chance to eat chicken agree they’re incredibly tasty.
 
But we digress. Even if some of us have no love for the other birds, consider the big picture. Man is turning nature into a parking lot. And for what? Money—the very substance they use our images upon. Oh bitter irony. Plus, have you noticed how hot it’s been lately? They definitely have something to do with that, the destructive fuckers, and since we don't have sweat glands elevated heat is a real inconvenience. So, eagle-on-man violence—all those in favor? Nays? Right, let’s go. Aim for the eyes. They really hate that.

BEYOND THE PAIL
Tell us what we want to hear or the waterboard is next!

If this isn’t the most diabolical cover art ever painted, we don’t know torture when we see it. Of course, that’s entirely possible—the memo we got from the Bush justice department a while back still has us really confused on the issue.
