The Men’s Adventure Quarterly #1 — classic Western stories & art issue (PAPERBACK)

The MEN’S ADVENTURE QUARTERLY is a lushly-illustrated, full color magazine launched in 2021 that reprints and discusses classic stories and artwork from men’s adventure magazines published in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. This first issue reprints rip-snorting Western stories by Lou Cameron, Dean W. Ballenger, Jack Pearl, Don Honig and other veteran action/adventure writers. Each story is accompanied by the cover of the magazine it appeared in and the original interior artwork, plus an introduction with background information on the writer, artist or magazine. Issue #1 also includes a special Western cover gallery featuring artwork by great artists like Frank McCarthy, Mort Künstler, Rafael DeSoto, Robert Stanley, Vic Prezio, Norm Eastman, Wil Hulsey, Charles Copeland, Bob Schulz and many others. There’s also a “cheesecake” pinup photo “GAL-lery” featuring model and actress Juli Reding, classic men’s adventure magazine cartoons and ads, and a guest editorial by Western expert and author Paul Bishop, co-host of the SIX-GUN JUSTICE PODCAST. Start your MAQ collection with this inaugural issue, and watch for new ones every quarter.
