Luchadores… In Space!

mercoledì, maggio 21st, 2008

Here’s
the cover illustration for the story "D-3 Base De Monstruos" by Spanish
artist Jose Luis Sampedro Macias, who drew dozens of covers for the
pulp magazine Luchadores del Espacio, plus tons of pulp paperbacks, in the 1950s. Despite (or maybe because of) being unable to see the work of American artists
of the time, Jose Luis brings his own bright style to the pulp-art
standbys of bug-eyed monsters, women and flying saucers. His work
features prominently an amazing gallery of 1950s Spanish pulp science
fiction covers, uploaded by El Estratografico. A few more of our
favorites, after the jump.


See the rest of the covers in El Estratografico’s Flickr gallery. [1950s Spanish Scifi Novels on Flickr, via EasyDreamer]
