The old German pulp mag Terra [and Utopia] was a treasure trove of great covers. Like many other mags, we find similar images and names on toy box art. Here's just a few Terra tasters:
1. Top left 'Turme strahlen den Tod' [Towers beam down Death]. The cool jet design was a staple for Gakken toys and also turned up on the Space Ship X-5 box. But what is that jet design? Is it a stileto or complete fantasy?
2. Top right: "Atombrand am Sudpol" [Nuclear Fire in Antarctica]. I suppose artists everywhere loved to capture the blast of jet engines. I've thrown in two drawings by SWORD artist Malcolm Stokes for good measure.
3. Bottom: the trouble with titles! The Terra title 'Mond Prospektor' means Moon Prospector but is actually a re-titled 'The Trouble With Tycho". There was a 'Moon Prospector' in the english-speaking pulps, one we've seen before on the blog - the fabulous laser tank cover by the great Kelly Freas and words by William B.Ellern. The story was an official part of the Lensman universe.
More pulp art welcomed folks!
