The first cover is amazing. Makes me wonder if the chinese with the saw is asking to the girl: What piece is your favorite?

True, the Yellow Peril was a common theme in the pulps of the 30s.

Fu Manchu and elated characters, right? Reminds me of a story by Cordwainer Smith.

The middle cover is the one that appealed to me because the guy under the sheet looks real and there is nothing better than a blond ripping back the sheet and taking a good look. Watch out, Blondie! Somebody's going to slip it to you.

According to economic forecasts the Yellow Peril is alive and well.
