Clark Hulings combo Fidel Castro/bondage cover… a far cry from his fantastic mainstream paintings (take a look)


  • Where The Wonderful New Jobs Will Be In The Next 10 Years – interview with Deputy Secretary Of Labor Seymour Wolfbein
  • The Stubborn Admiral Who Beat The Russians To The PolarisAdmiral William “Red” Raborn article by David Norman
  • Kiss Death On The Mouth – billed as a complete novel but actually just an excerpt by Dan J Marlowe (his 4th), art by Clark Hulings (a Johnny Killain (spelling changed to “Killian” here) story originally published as The Fatal Frails, Avon T452, 1960)
  • How Castro Double-Crossed His American Sidekick – Article by Neil McCauley discussing Castro’s arrest of Bill Morgan, an American citizen that that fought alongside Castro against the Bautista regime. Initially believing Castro to be anti-communist, Morgan sided with the counter-revolutionaries after discovering Castro’s true leanings and was executed a month after this issue’s publication.
  • Kim Soo-Im

    Agent Kim Soo Im: The Undercover Wench Who Tipped Our Battle Plans In Korea – sensationalized article by Ivan Colt regarding alleged communist spy of the Korean War, Kim Soo-Im. Kim Soo-Im was tried in a South Korean court and executed as a spy. More recent revelations indicate that Kim Soo-Im was innocent but an easy target for the South Korean government’s “witch hunt” for communists & communist sympathizers because of her romantic involvement with both a prominent communist, Lee Gang-kook, and American Colonel John E Baird. A tragic case but at the time of this publication Kim Soo-Im was considered the South Korean Mata Hari, with the cover going so far as to call her a “streetwalker” (see one of two pages of the accompanying artwork below by Emmet Kay). The film rights to her story were sold by Kim Soo-Im’s son in 2006 and the project was assigned a working title of Against Conspiracy in 2009 but I’ve been unable to find anything more recent concerning the film.
