As you are probably aware, I am a huge pulp art and military art fan. One of the best there ever was in the business is the famous Mort Kunstler. In the past I’ve posted several of the Master’s works in the pulp art category from the 1950-60s and have found enough (new to me) ones to make a third extensive post. As always with this blog, click to big up and feel free to save for posterity.
Without further “adoo”…bring on the Mort!
Now this would have been a super interesting method of delivering small X-craft and Chariot type midget subs (sorry, the correct term these days is little people subs) to a target area. The flying boat is a U.S. Navy PBM, the submersible looks a lot like an updated WWII German Biber or Italian Chariot and the Aqualung is all 1950s. Now that’s cool pulp.
Normandy. And no, I don’t think John Hamm was around when Mort drew this one…excellent detail on the M1 carbine though.
Hey it gets cold in the polar regions mate
Frogman v Frogman (big up this one, you’ll want to)
Mort Küntsler (1956) “The Hardboiled Lineup” ….Anyone feeling some Usual Suspects here?
This is actually a beautiful image of martial art.
Is that a long barreled M3 submachine gun or are you just too hip for this party?
Thats what I’ve always wanted in my trunk is a M1919 Browning .30 cal machine-gun with a remote firing solenoid.
How many times was this Mort pulp from the Woodstock era ‘re-imaged’ in heist and spy flicks?
You gotta love the Tommy gun if nothing else.
