|Vintage Pulp||Feb 2 2010|
Two Terror Tales pulp magazines with woman-in-danger cover art by Rudolph Zirm, 1934 and 1935. Zirm’s work is collectible today, but he never had much chance to make a go of being a fulltime artist. He did about thirty pulp covers during a six-year career, including several for Short Stories, but financial needs prompted a move into the field of lithography, where he worked for the rest of his life. The two examples above show what a loss that was for the world of pulp illustration. You can see more Zirm covers at the comprehensive website pulpartists.com.
