Sci-Fi Pulp Cover Gallery!

Haven't done one of these in a while, have I?
First up, here's Amazing Stories May, 1950. It's an interesting visual, with the Crystal Brain Man controlling everything. Looks like a possible inspiration for the later Teen Titans villain Psi-Mon, doesn't it?
Women on these old SF pulp covers usually barely manage to stay covered, don't they? This is from the September 1948 Amazing Stories.

I really can't think of much to say about the February 1942 cover to Fantastic Adventures other than possibly WTF?

An epic disaster on the cover of the November, 1951 issue of Astounding, presumably tying in with the "Making Worlds Collide" article.

As seen on the cover of Amazing Stories from September, 1949, everyone was hoping to create the next John Carter!

Amazing Stories April, 1938 cover-featured a bizarre-looking robot!

A pretty cool-looking cover on Amazing Stories from July, 1951!

I'm not sure what this cover image went with of the two stories mentioned on the cover of the December, 1952 issue of Startling Stories, but it is interesting to see the damsel on the cover being covered up!

The cover of the December, 1950 Astounding is pure awesomeness!

    You could say the cover was by Robert Fuqua and H. W. McCauley (see ).

    I don't recognize either story for Startling Stories V28 #2, but I'd guess there's a very good chance the cover has nothing to do with either of them! (I bought a LOT of magazines before I learned that!)
