Artwork of the Day: End of a J.D. (by Mitchell Hooks)


by Mitchell Hooks

This is from 1960.  J.D. stands for juvenile delinquent.  I like this cover, with the way the two realistically-drawn characters are surrounded by an expressionistic cityscape.  This cover was done by Mitchell Hooks, who we’ve featured many times on the site and who we’ll probably feature many more times in the future.

Celebrating New Orleans With The Pulps


Unknown Artist

Tomorrow is Mardi Gras.  For many people, it will be their last chance to celebrate and indulge before the start of Lent.  Though there are annual celebrations across the country, the city that everyone think of when they hear the words “Mardi Gras” is New Orleans.  If you’ve not going to be able to get down to New Orleans this year to celebrate Mardi Gras, don’t worry.  Through the Shattered Lens has got you covered with these New Orleans and Mardi Gras-related pulp covers!
