PULP MAYHEM VOLUME 2: BONDAGE-TORTURE
FORMAT: PDF DOWNLOAD
PRODUCT CODE: SOD-P0002
Men’s adventure magazines were a form of pulp publishing which flourished in 1950s and 1960s America, pandering to the cruelty and lust of young men with luridly illustrated stories of war, sleaze and savagery. Some arose in direct response to the inauguration of the Comics Code in 1954, as a way of circumventing censorship by presenting material in a new, “adults-only” format. The prime years of the men’s adventure magazine unleashed a visual and verbal deluge of exposed and tormented flesh, bloody mayhem and sexual delinquency, representing a unique cultural phenomenon in US publishing and art. PULP MAYHEM is a digital book series which collects prime illustrated
stories from a range of men’s adventure magazines published during the
key years of the genre.
PULP MAYHEM VOLUME TWO showcases one of the more controversial strands of illustrated pulp, dedicated to lurid tales of torture and bondage. These stories portrayed sadists, rapists, torturers and killers whose victims were almost invariably scantily-clad, large-breasted female captives. Bondage is the predominant element in these texts and artworks, which conveyed sexual perversion as strongly as the times would allow.
