Combat Gallery Sunday: Give us the Mort, Part IV

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 fourth 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.
