VENGEANCE IS MINE


Now, that is super classic broad-with-a-gun pulp illustrating. The artist did great stuff with light - the hair, the slip, the gun half hidden in shadows under her.

And the hair. Oh yes! The hair! Which includes the eyebrows.

It's a cut above the average pulp cover, for sure.

Honestly, sci fi and pulp artists don't get the credit they deserve.

The pumps are especially realistic and good. That cover makes me want to read the book.

I'm fascinated by the slip. I just noticed the small tear in the seam and the lace at the bottom.

Leila: I agree wholeheartedly.

May: Magazine, actually, but yes.

DTG,
You are so clearly a visual person. You notice shit I never would.

Love, SB.

I just like looking at tough broads in their underwear.

Who doesn't?

Blind people?

Ms. Moon said...

Blind people like it too, they just aren't able.

Like vampires are the world's best golfers, but no one will ever know?
