Sci-fi Pulp Covers

99 posts in this topic

I know there's at least a couple of us who like these old sci-fi pulp covers ,,I just came across a few more nice ones and I felt like sharing.If you dont like them just let this topic drop to the bottom.

I think I've found an early Boba Fett on one cover.

Great stuff Phil,Nice to see you've stuck to the robot theme,,,,,,,,,,I knew I could rely on you and Blech to contribute to this post,,,You was the other of the 'couple' I mentioned..Yea it's us three who love these covers.In the next day or so I will see what other one's I can find,,I've spotted quite a few unusual British one's ,but I have to admit the artwork isn't usually as good as say the American one's,but having said that,they do have a naive charm... :)

BTW,I've just noticed the Buck Rogers comics are probably British,,6 D was six old pence in our currency..Or is that how you would show your currency as well?

Is the Floating Robot by Earl Bergey?

David,,,,,,With a tiny bit of research I'm afraid I couldnt get that connection,maybe at a later date I might be able to find out who did the Floating robot artwork.....Here's a couple of covers that are definately Earl Kulp Bergey. I will post the Floating Robot again so we can compare.

Spark, I picked out 12 of the 32 books I purchased and discussed in the fantasy novel thread. Some are disturbing and the one of the rocket worshipers is reminiscent of the scientists in Beneath the Planet of the Apes. The guitar guy must be on LSD. If there are any more in the original group you want to see closer let me know. Enjoy! :D

The Body hunters,,,,,,,,,,,Alien,,,,,,,,,The Tingler! although I would think the film The Tingler would pre-date your magazine...All great covers though,I used to have the 'Hairdresser' one[second right]..
