I’m in debt to reader “MB” for sending along this link to a trove of Australian pulp covers. Apparently American pulp magazines were banned from Australia in 1939, leading to a boom in domestic Australian pulp output in the postwar period. The result is a lot of stuff that’s every bit as delicious as American pulp, but not as familiar:
You’re looking at a detail from a classic “Japanese POW Camp” genre cover, from a book called Escape From The Hell Camp; I find it notable because it’s got a naked man and a naked woman, in a show of egalitarian nudity that the U.S. pulps rarely managed.
