  1. This review starts out very wisely stating for all to hear that Captain America and Marvel Comics per se DO NOT APPEAR in this book. This is the rare pulp art from the myrid of companies that were the predecessor to Timely/Marvel comics. The artwork is dramatic, dark, and in some cases, borders on the good side of porn. There are clear examples of good girl art, BSDM and bondage, but it’s all in documentation of this long gone period when men’s periodicals were just “accepted” and they fueled men’s fantasies before Playboy and Penthouse came along.
