Combat Gallery Sunday: Vive le Mort! Part trois!

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 intersting method of delvering 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 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biber_%28submarine%29 and the Aqualung is all 1950s. Now that's cool pulp.

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 machinegun with a remote firing solenoid.

How many times was this Mort pulp from the Woodstock era 'reimaged' in heist and spy flicks?

About laststandonzombieisland

Let me introduce myself. I am a bit of a conflict junkie. I am fascinated by war and warfare, assassination, personal protection and weaponry ranging from spud guns and flame throwers to thermonuclear bombs and Soviet-trained Ebola monkeys. In short, if it’s violent or a tool to create violence it is kind of my thing. I have written a few thousand articles on the dry encyclopedia side for such websites as Guns.com, University of Guns, Outdoor Hub, Tac-44, History Times, Big Game Hunter, Glock Forum, Firearms Talk.com, and Combat Forums; as well as for print publications like England Expects, and Strike First Strike Fast. Several magazines such as Sea Classics, Military Historian and Collector, Mississippi Sportsman and Warship International have carried my pieces. Additionally I am on staff as a naval consultant and writer for Eye Spy Intelligence Magazine. Currently I am working on several book projects including an alternative history novel about the US-German War of 1916, and a biography of Southern gadfly and soldier of fortune Bennett Doty. My first novel, about the coming zombie apocalypse was released in 2012 by Necro Publications and can be found at Amazon.com as was the prequel, Chimera-44. I am currently working on book two of that series: "Pirates of the Zombie Coast." In my day job I am a contractor for the U.S. federal government in what could best be described as the ‘Force Protection’ field. In this I am an NRA-certified firearms, and less-than-lethal combat instructor.

"That 'law-abiding' stuff works as along as normal people can believe that they aren't the only schmucks doing so. The last decade has taught anybody but the most clueless Boomer drones that the normies actually ARE the only ones following the law, across all levels of society. When even five percent of those folks say 'fuck it' - and they will, very soon - Katy, bar the door." - WRSA Reader
