I Watched Them Eat Me Alive: Killer Creatures in Men’s Adventure Magazines (1) (Men’s Adventure Library Journal)

$9.95$24.95

I Watched Them Eat Me Alive is the first installment of The Men’s Adventure Library Journal, a series focusing on specific facets of the vintage men’s adventure magazines stories, artwork, and history. This deluxe, expanded hardcover contains additional material exclusive to this edition.

Dedicated to exploring the lost world of vintage men’s adventure magazines (aka MAMs), The Men’s Adventure Library chronicles the mags’ three decades on American newsstands, from the early 1950s through the mid-1970s. Mixing elements from many sources—early pulp fiction, detective stories and true crime, mystery and noir films, exotic travel magazines, celebrity scandal rags and bachelor mags—MAMs ratcheted up the tension and amped up the testosterone to create explosive, entertaining, and often outrageous reading for millions of American men. Though long extinct and mostly unseen for generations, their pervasive influence continues to shape some of the most popular and enduring pop culture tropes and trends.

Curated by MAM historian/collector Robert Deis and writer Wyatt Doyle, The Men’s Adventure Library reprints and provides context for classic MAM stories and artwork drawn from the mags’ rich history of gonzo pulp, with releases available in full-color trade paperback and deluxe, expanded hardcover editions. Each volume is a vivid reminder that MAMs were extremely cool, unexpectedly influential, and still pack a bare-knuckle punch. Read ’em all…if you’ve got the guts!
