    1st Edition - 1st printing. By Adam Parfey. Man's Exploits, Rage, Escape to Adventure - these were a few of the 35-cent magazines that helped veterans confront the confusion of jobs, girls and the Cold War after coming home from World War II. It's a Man's World looks back at the last great run of pop illustrations, at least as brilliant as pulp's best. Contributions from Bruce Jay Friedman, Josh Alan Friedman, and David Saunders help bring us inside the offices, showing us how the writers, illustrators, editors, and publishers put together two decades of "armpit slicks." Original art from the notorious Mort Kunstler, Norman Saunders and Norm Eastman are featured within, and Bill Devine's annotated checklist of the many thousands of adventure magazines is essential for collectors of the genre. Hardcover, 9-in. x 11-in., 288 pages, full color. Cover price $29.95.
