Chewed to Bits by Giant Turtles! Vintage Men's Adventure Magazines

Before Maxim and Esquire, there was a previous generation of men's magazines. Pulpy, violent, and equally sex-obsessed as the current publications, these men's adventure magazines feature fantastic headlines like: "Why Foreign Girls Make Better Wives and Lovers," "Cannibal Crabs Craw to Kill," and "I'm Teaching My Kid to Fight Dirty."  

The always awesome Art of Manliness has assembled a great collection from Men’s Adventure Magazines: In Postwar America that you simply must check out.

Wow, this brings up a bad childhood memory. I saw one of these magazines at my grandparent's house and I remember being disturbed by the cover which featured two cowboys threatening to brand a woman. Now I've got that image in my head.
