True Crime, True North

The Golden Age of Canadian Pulp Magazines

Book - 2004
Rate this:
The covers are bold and brassy, the advertisements are spicy and the stories recount cases of murder, robbery, sex and violence. Who can resist true crime magazines? The pulps are typically considered a quintessentially American art form, but Canada developed its own pulp industry and Canadian publishers turned out scores of magazines during World War II.With lively text that is both entertaining and informative, alongside eye-popping samples of full-colour magazine covers, True Crime, True North leads readers back to the pulps of the 1940s, exploring the themes that characterized true crime in Canada: the unquestioned adherence to retributive justice, the unwavering faith in lawmen and the enduring affection for the men of the RCMP.
