True crime, true north: the golden age of Canadian pulp magazines
Raincoast Books, Feb 14, 2005 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 111 pages
This lively book takes a loving look at the Canadian true crime pulps of the World War II era - their bold, brassy covers, spicy advertisements, and stories of murder, robbery, sex, and violence. With vivid archival images of both magazine covers and ads, True Crime, True North examines the themes that characterized the genre in Canada: the unquestioned adherence to retributive justice, the unwavering faith in lawmen, and the enduring affection for Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The authors also trace pulp writers' preoccupation with jealousy and betrayal, the deadly consequences of greed, and the growing menace of "sex fiends."
