The MEN’S ADVENTURE QUARTERLY #8 is the first MAQ issue to come in three editions: the usual full color edition, a less expensive “Noir Edition” in which the interior pages are all black-and-white, and a full color digital replica edition viewable with an iPad, a Kindle Fire, or a PC or Mac computer. This listing is for the full color print edition. The Noir edition is available from the MensPulpMags.com bookstore in a separate listing at this link. The digital edition is only available via Amazon at this link.
MAQ #8 is our “Heavy Hitters” issue. It features classic men’s adventure magazine stories and artwork about hit men and hit women. MAQ Co-Editor Bob Deis provides an introduction for each story that sheds light on the writers, artists, magazines, and characters involved. This issue also includes several special features written exclusively for the MAQ. One, written by retromedia maven, author and podcaster Gary Lovisi, provides a look at hit men in movies, paperbacks and real life. Another looks at the world’s most famous male artists’ model – Steve Holland – in a profile written by Michael Stradford, the world’s foremost expert on Holland. There’s also an article by MAQ co-editor Bill Cunningham that provides deep background on the Blaxploitation movie classic HIT MAN. On top of all that, you get to meet a special lady who was a big “hit” with men back in the ’50s and ’60s, Betty Brosmer, in our MAQ GAL-LERY feature.
Join us as we recount the adventures of ruthless killers and killer bodies in this special “Heavy Hitters” issue of the MEN’S ADVENTURE QUARTERLY!
