 Man's Life was an old pulp adventure magazine that featured all manner of lurid covers and ridiculous articles. They were a staple of many a manly-man venue at one time. A bit of trivia, the cover pictured above was inspiration for the name of Frank Zappa's Weasels Ripped My Flesh album.

These samples come from Vintage Everyday's article Cool “Man's Life” Magazine Covers Circa the 1950s. You can see more after the jump and at the article's link. 

I would love to be able to read some of those old articles -- they sound like they drip with 1950s wise-cracking tough guy protecting his dame foolishness. Besides, I wonder how he ever managed managed to escape from the weasel swarm attack?



They even had zombie infestations back then!
