Cover Love Pulp Covers II

Over the last couple years I've been spotlighting pulp covers on my Sunday Post every week. It's been fun and you'd think I would run out of material after a while, but no- the hits just keep coming. :) Seriously, there is no shortage of excellent, um, interesting pulp covers to be found! And I got thinking- which ones are my favorites? After all, I've run quite a few so far! So, here are some of my favorites- this is part two.

  3. I love the pulp covers though sometimes they can be just a little too much! I think the Agatha Christies are my favorite because normally everyone is at least mostly dressed. I love the one you shared though it has absolutely nothing to do with the events in the book.

  6. These are fabulous! Whenever I see them, I get all logical- like in the first one I am like "wow, that girl totally has frostbite now, that must be painful". When I mean, she's being chased by a killer and the snow is probably the least of her problems? And then You're Lonely When You're Dead... I am pondering like, well ARE you? Or are you just dead? With other dead people? And obviously I put wayyy more thought into these than anyone ever should, but that is why I like them hah.

  7. Oh, gotta love pulp covers! They are so dated and ridiculous, but they definitely have a special charm and I have so much fun looking at them.

  10. OMG The Murderer Vine! That cover slays me. 😂I have to say, pulp fiction covers really do "go there" and I like that about them.

  11. Pulp covers are a lot of fun. The taglines are a mess, haha. "Underwater she had the conscience of a shark." What does that even mean??? Lol. And the perfectly placed grass on the one cover, haha.
