The Ultra Manly Covers of Man’s Life


Unknown Artist

From the 1950s through the early 70s, Man’s Life was “the action magazine for men.”  Or, at least, that’s what it claimed on the covers.  Judging from these covers, a man’s life back in the 20th century consisted of 1) fighting wild animals, 2) getting attacked by woman who had forgotten to button up their shirts, and 3) standing up for truth, justice, and the American way.

Here are a few of the extremely manly covers of Man’s Life.  Be sure to check out the headlines too because some of them are certainly interesting.  Any comments from any men as to whether or not these covers present an accurate representation would be greatly appreciated.  As always, the artist has been credited where known!
