BARBARIANS ON BIKES Unleashed in Two Full-Color Editions
"Sex Rampage of the Cycle Savages" ... "Big Mama's Killer Cycle Army" ... "Cross-Country Blast With 'Satan's Riders'" ... "Cycle Queens of Violence" ...
The headlines in classic men's pulp adventure magazines sure could paint a picture ... and so could the masters of pulp art who illustrated them. The latest installment in the Men's Adventure Library shifts gears to focus exclusively on men's adventure magazine artwork in a new, oversized (8.5" x 11") format designed to show off these explosive pulp illustration masterworks to maximum effect.
Barbarians on Bikes rounds up three decades of vintage pulp magazine covers and interiors depicting rowdy motorcycle action and outlaw biker gang attacks, most unseen since their original publication. A unique archive of biker illustration art at its most savage, with history and context by editors Robert Deis (MensPulpMags.com) and Wyatt Doyle (Cryptozoology Anthology), and an afterword/reality check by crime novelist/top cop Paul Bishop. And the deluxe hardcover includes an additional 20 pages of belted and booted biker pulp art. Barbarians on Bikes is big, bad, and untamed. Can you handle the ride?
Barbarians on Bikes is available in two editions. The deluxe hardcover is designed for the collector, boasting superior paper and print quality, an alternate arrangement of images, plus those 20 big bonus pages packed with even more unforgettable artwork. For the merely curious, the trade softcover edition delivers the full-color punch of the hardcover at a lower cover price.
Barbarians on Bikes is a high-octane visual archive, the first of its kind...read it like you stole it!
