Tuesday Crustie: Macho

Following on last week, here’s more proof that crustaceans can be terrifying. For some people.

For more “They don’t make ‘em like that any more” men’s magazine covers, go visit this gallery in The Art of Manliness. Besides crabs, men in the 1950s also fought flying rodents, monkeys, weasels, giant turtles, and giant otters.

Additional, 3 May 2015: I have learned that this cover, and many others like it, were drawn by Will Hulsey, who died recently. PulpLibrarian said of his work:

And so we bid a fond farewell to Will Hulsey.

He only drew one thing.

But it was a great thing.

And he drew it.
