    Description

    Samson Pollen For Men Only Magazine Original Art (Magazine Management Publ., c. 1950s). Bold mountaineers gang up on a puma - three against one - only to find themselves ill-prepared for an attack by the creature's vengeful mate. A large-scale shockeroo from Pollen, who was an artistic ally of such famous editor-author staffers as Mario Puzo, Bruce Jay Friedman, and Mickey Spillane at For Men Only and related titles. Magazine Management was the blue-collar workingman's counterpart to a corporate affiliate, Marvel Comics. Pollen's wild animals are scarier than their zoologically correct models, thanks to the artist's ability to bestow emotional qualities with dramatic facial exaggerations. Brilliant stuff from the pulp-magazine sector. Opaque watercolors on toned illustration board. Image area, 26.5" x 18". Excellent condition, barring edge wear.
