Man's Exploits, Rage, Escape to Adventure -- these were a few of the 35-cent magazines that helped veterans confront the confusion of jobs, girls and the Cold War after coming home from World War II. IT'S A MAN'S WORLD looks back at the last great run of pop illustration, at least as brilliant as pulp's best. Contributions from Bruce Jay Friedman, Josh Alan Friedman and David Saunders help bring us inside the offices, showing us how the writers, illustrators, editors and publishers put together two decades of "armpit slicks." Original art from the notorious Mort Künstler, Norman Saunders and Norm Eastman are featured within, and Bill Devine's annotated checklist of the many thousands of adventure magazines is essential for collectors of the genre. Author Adam Parfrey is the editor of EXTREME ISLAM, APOCALYPSE CULTURE II and the co-author of LEXICON DEVIL: THE FAST TIMES AND SHORT LIFE OF DARBY CRASH AND THE GERMS.About the Author:
Since his influential collection, Apocalypse Culture, was first released in 1987, the award-winning writer Adam Parfrey has been credited for discovering and revealing the inner workings of cults and unusual pop culture histories. With "Love, Sex, Fear, Death," Parfrey has captured the cooperation of primary players in the most secretive and talked about cult of our time.
