20 Vintage Scifi Magazine Covers : Pulp Fiction

We just recently got linked to an amazing archive of vintage pulp fiction magazine covers from 50's era magazines including Amazing Stories, Other Worlds, Fantastic Adventures and more. These magazines were incredibly popular during an era dominated by world war, economic downturn and other sociopolitical factors that made these magazines an appealing escape from reality at the time.

These inexpensive magazines gained their 'pulp' classification based off of the cheap paper that they were typically printed on, as well as their content, which typically focused on sensationalism and exploitative stories to drive sales against other competing pulp magazines. Check out a ton more of these awesome vintage covers after the break!
