You know, we see a lot of bad Photoshop and weak paste-up around here, but this truly takes the cake. There’s always a telltale sign of fakery, but in this case, the sheer realism of this National Examiner cover from forty-four years ago today reveals it as a phony. Never in the annals of pulpdom has a severed head looked this authentic—which pretty much exposes it as a scam. No pulp publication—not even Pulp Intl., and certainly not the obscure National Examiner—has ever had a writer or photographer present for an actual news story. We just rewrite that shit like we were there. Spare us, okay?
