    1st printing. By Max Allan Collins, George Hagenauer, Steven Heller and Rich Oberg. With an in-depth introductory essay describing the history, culture, and artistry of men's adventure - a.k.a. "sweat" - magazines, as well as chapter-by-chapter exploration of various subjects including the role of women and the portrayal of Nazis and Communists, this definitive study of the genre pays homage to the American periodicals of the 1950s, '60s, and '70s, examining not only the popular appeal of the magazines but also their social and political implications. Also included are publisher listings and profiles of artists and writers, as well as an interview with Norm Eastman, one of the genre's most important artists. Hardcover, 7-in. x 8 1/2-in., 352 pages, full color. Cover price $14.99.
