Magazine Archive Yahoo Group - Part IV

Great googly moogly, I've neglected my "to post" folder, and it's grown out of control!!!! Will I never learn...

Here we go, descriptions might be a little curt this time around (the ones that I haven't already posted elsewhere at least), I've got to get em up. Some neat mags for y'all:

Adventure v105n06 (1941-10.Popular)(D&M-DPP). First up, an issue of Adventure from October 1941. I picked it because of the cover which I really like, although it's come puzzle me. I was drawn to the gaze of the soldier in the forefront and the way he is looking right at the reader with a steel resolve. But what exactly is going on here? Is this the Big Red One? The patch on the shoulder points toward that direction, but it's not the patch actually worn by the 1st Infantry (besides the fact that that unit wouldn't have been parachuting?). Adding to the puzzle, McCoy (who is responsible for the excellent edit on the issue) astutely observed that this issue came out two months before we even entered the war. Hmm... The pulp kicks off with a George Surdez story of a legionnaire leading a motley assortment of soldiers and pinned down by Nazi air power in Norway.

Bananas 016 (1977.Scholastic) Three's Company. Thanks to McCoy for this scan of Bananas which was for kids a little older than the group that got Dynamite in the schools. Like a pill that induces nostalgia, a very well done pub from Scholastic. The Lies issue. Kiss, Three's Company, Robert Silverberg.

Crime Expose' v01n01 (1957-10.Skye). Thanks to McCoy for the first issue of this true crime title of the sensational variety, a fantastic issue. The cover cracks me up every time I look at it. Just what you need when you simply must find a hooker.

Films and Filming v15n06 (1969-03.Hansom). Thanks to McCoy for another issue of this cool UK film magazine. Every time I open up one of these old film magazines, I spend an hour on the IMDB hopping from film to film. Violence in the cinema issue.

An example of an interesting fiction and poetry magazine out of Chicago frombefore the turn of the century. A relatively short magazine, the ad pages were printed on a nice white stock and the story pages were printed on a thick pulppaper with the illustrations on a couple of thin stocks of slick paper individually glued in, neato. From the first year of publication, this issue claims that the mag had a circulation of 75,000 and growing and would send new subscribers a complimentary set of back issues (except for the first issue which they claimed was now selling for $1 a copy - the cover price is five cents). The advertisements point to a mix of Chicago advertisers along with national adsfor the usual bicycles, typewriters, and luxury resorts and travel.

The cover and art direction is by Carl Werntz, who would go on to a long career as a photographer and illustrator in newspapers and magazines. He'd also found the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts.

A couple close-ups of his illustrations within here:

Also of note is a short story from Zona Gale, "In the Shadow of the Wall." Gale would go one to become the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize in drama and become active in the push for women's rights and in the progressive movement.

GO v01n01 (1965.A&B Associates) Thanks to McCoy for the vintage girlie magazine. Some real cuties in here, but sometimes I have a real problem looking past the big hair (and, yes, I'm talking about the hair on their head, it's a cleavage-only variety of naughty mag :p)

Harvard Lampoon Parody of USA Today (Fall, 1986) (ABPVM). From the vintagemags newsgroup. Hey, wait. Isn't the USA Today already a parody of a real paper?! Plenty of laughs in here, very neat. My props to the scanner too for doing such a nice job on it. Newsprint + newspaper size makes for a tricky scan.

Hit Parader 103 (1973-02.Charlton)(pg 59-60 clipped). Thanks to McCoy for the scan of a fun music mag. Bowie on the cover and all sorts of goodies. This issue introduced me to Lord Sutch, what a trip. Charlton published this mag for years and years, I guess the numbering must have started over at some point. Was just reading this interesting article on Charlton history recently. Apparently the company began from a jailhouse handshake between a disbarred attorney and an Italian immigrant who'd been imprisoned for selling copyrighted sheet music. At one point Charlton had 40 mags and 40 comics coming out a month, impressive.

Inside v01n01 (1954-10.Dodshaw) Thanks to McCoy for this premiere issue of this pocket magazine title that tosses around much dirt and innuendo. Gawd, I love this stuff. Liberace on the cover. I recall he sued Confidential for libel and won, but I sure seem to see articles like the one within hinting at his manliness in a lot of the mags of the day.
