This Week’s Pulp Purchase X2


A fist edition, no less. You know what’s great about Mickey Spillane?

1. His picture on the back of the book:


If I’d taken that picture, I’d label it “A Stewbum with a Gun.” He’s clearly toothless, The shirt is ill advised, he holds the gun without any real conviction.

2. His Signature.

3. Sometimes his titles are pretty good

4. That’s about it.

Second Purchase:

Too Many COOKS

Ah, Nero Wolfe. And we can clearly see the difficulty that arises when one goes consorting with too many cooks. It is impressive the way he’s unruffled at the guy shooting him RIGHT IN THE CHEEK. No doubt he’s anesthetized by the bottle of lager he drinks before dropping off to sleep. You know what else is great about this cover?




About nitrovonborax

The Mighty Arthammer of von Borax strikes the Anvil of Universal Consciousness, forging Iconic Singularities of Metaphor. Nitro von Borax is widely recognized as the natural heir to the crumbling facade of an empire that Thomas Kinkade built with massmarket hack-retouched cottagey papscapes, which glow as though lit by pernicious chip-grease fires within and trigger pleasurable dissociative transport to the plebian viewer. Mr. von Borax, known to his discerning, sophisticated & politically progressive fans as "The Painter of Sprinkly Sparkles," pulls inspiration from Betty & Veronica BOTH, stolen travel brochures & comic books, Martin Denny & Italian Giallo Movies to visualize and manifest pure unfettered awesomeness for your astral excursions. His portfolio resonates at a frequency only bats can hear.

  1. Great finds, totally horrific and shocking, especially the signature and the muscle shirt.
