Retro crime we love it and they don’t come much more Retro than Manuhunt magazine a pulp crime paper that featured such luminaries as Mickey Spillane, Evan Hunter (Ed Mc Bain)and Leslie Charteris. The magazine started in 1953, so it was slow to jump on the band-wagon that the famous Black Mask magazine started. The digest size magazine was a big seller however, clocking up sales of over half a million in its heyday. Sex sells sensationalism was a publishing trend that came and went of course, but Manhunt surfed the wave when pickings were good, leaving a heritage of crazed covers and steamy prose sun bathing on the beach. Dig those scary covers Crimeziners!
