Hugely influential in the folk-revival, Broadside Magazine was founded in 1962 by Agnes “Sis” Cunningham and her husband, Gordon Friesen, as a small mimeographed publication. The magazine reflected the times. It was often controversial, and was the subject of questions in one of Bob Dylan’s many news conferences, as seen in the Martin Scorcese documentary on Bob Dylan released in 2005. Issues of what is folk? what is folk rock? and who is folk? were roundly discussed and debated. At the same time, Broadside nurtured and promoted important singer-songwriters of the era.

Edgar Rice Burroughs created the fictional character Tarzan, a feral youth raised by apes, who returns to civilization, rejects it and returns to the wild as a vine-swinging heroic adventurer.

Tarzan first appeared in the novel, “Tarzan of the Apes” (magazine publication 1912 book publication 1914).

Here “The Triumph of Tarzan” is published in Blue Book Magazine, December 1931.The cover illustration depicts Tarzan swinging a native over his shoulders in what appears to be a fight to the death. A white hunter appears in the background, at the edge of the frame, carrying what looks to be a rifle. We thought this was a stunning metaphorical image of African colonialism.

The McCall Company published this pulp fiction magazine of adventure stories. Blue Book magazine offered $500 in cash prizes for “real experiences’ which they published monthly.
