Jitterbug Jazz Date with a Hot Seat Magazines Aren't what they USED to Be #53 Vintage Sleaze the Blog Real Detective Edition

A special edition of the continuing series Magazines Aren't What They USED to Be here on Vintage Sleaze the Blog, in which we attribute the decline of magazine rack sales not to the internet, but to a serious lack of lurid cover artists!  

Real Detective!  Every word true.  

This installment needs no text, as the pulpy pulps do it for us, but if you are interested in the genre, the essential book in the field was published in a glorious edition of 3,000 copies in 2006.  Cyanide and Sin: Visualizing Crime in 50s America by Will Straw.  The book is a KILLER.  As for the issues above, all were cribbed from a typical day on eBay.  MY favorite Newstand! 


THE COMPLETE LADY BOUNTIFUL BY Eugene Bilbrew as ENEG Peerless sales New York

As master illustrator Eugene Bilbrew apparently fell deeper into drug addition, his work took a turn for the worse seen often with illustrators. Less detail, a less sure hand, repeated themes and an overall slapdash appearance. Still packing a powerful punch (if  here one coming from a somewhat tired looking Amazon walking the streets of New York) the 4 page serials sold for several dollars each. Some illustrators took to heroin to help hold their hands steady for detail work.   

Bilbrew, as ENEG, drew dozens of these cheap fetish stories sold through Peerless Press and possibly for Candor Press, both operating out of the lower Broadway section of Manhattan.  Eric Stanton drew for the houses as well, as did some lesser known (and lesser talented)  They were done in the 1960s and into the 1970s. Some were one sheets folded, others came on card stock in sequence.  Cheap product.  One set had a Bilbrew cover, but a far less talented artist did the remaining pages.  Low Quality from lower Broadway.
