Love that Woo-Woo! by H.W. McCauley (Imagination, Sept. 1953)

The pulp covers were rather discrete about nudity on their covers. After all they did not want a news stand vendor hiding their magazines under the counter. But occasionally they would allow some nudity to get into the interior art. This Monday’s Lost Art will focus on some of that inner beauty. From the sublime to the cheesecake. Don’t forget to click on the images.

The 32 Arms of Santa Claus http://www.brainplucker.com/the-32-arms-of-santa-claus/ http://www.brainplucker.com/the-32-arms-of-santa-claus/#comments Tue, 22 Dec 2009 00:47:46 +0000 http://www.brainplucker.com/?p=949 The very versatile artist, Ed Emshweller (AKA Emsh), did a series of Christmas covers for Galaxy SF magazine in the 50s and early 60s. They all feature a four-armed Santa. I wonder if the Santa is a cyborg, mutant, or an alien. My vote is for a Mutant. All that mutative radiation from the magic dust.
