Ken_Begg Not sure I can find five shots that specific (that I haven’t already used!), but we’ll see. Flangepart Looks like. Not that I’m complaining, mind you… Beckoning Chasm It looks like the guy with the spear is also trying to kill the woman. Which means maybe the octopus is trying to save her! Ken_Begg I think this is your basic slasher movie. Girl is making out with her octopus boyfriend, psychokiller shows up… Rock Baker The French have a word for her! I bet it’s “Ooooooh la lahhhhhhhhhh!” As to the art itself, that blonde looks familiar. Granted, such a pose would be in file photos for cover artists, but I’m almost sure I saw a similar pose on a movie poster. (Maybe flipped so she was slumped over a railing or something?) Ken_Begg I actually have some old Men’s magazines–adventure ones, I mean, like this. None with killer animals on them; I’m sure those cost a lot more. Some day I may buy a scanner and do some pieces on those, and maybe all the Marvel omnibuses I keep accumulating. Would it be tacky to have a $50 kickstarter to buy a scanner? Or is that what they cost? Those little handheld ones. Oh, and a $8 kickstarter to buy a double cheeseburger basket at Culver’s. Rock Baker I found a couple of adventure mags in flea market many, many years ago. Spectacular cover art (the one I recall most vividly depicted a tiger hunt). Even had some cheesecake spreads (I remember a doll rolling around in tall weeds and they had painted in extra reeds to protect her modesty -or at least protect it’s space on the magazine rack from being elevated). I think the dates were around 1963 or so. Man, I wish I’d picked those up! sandra I wonder what the four legged horrors were ? Eric Hinkle I’m glad to see I’m not the only one wondering if that guy is trying to bejabbber the octopus or the girl. Petoht Weasels. They’ll rip your flesh. Rock Baker Cats. Rodford Smith Mike Nelson’s trained octopus helps him “rescue” yet another buxom blond!
