Hey, if that teaser worked for Detective World it is bound to bring gobs of traffic to Flares. Of course, that all assumes that Detective World lasted longer than an issue or two, which may be the flaw in my plan.

These covers, and the 13 others that follow after the jump, are from MagazineArt's Variety of Crime, Mystery and Detective Pulp section. MagazineArt is an archive of old magazine covers and ads. The detective magazine covers are great stuff: guns galore, tough broads, steely men and bullets zinging all over the place.

If you like this post, you may also like my earlier post Men's Life magazine covers.
