With a title like WEIRD TALES and those wacky cover pictures, I'm not sure they needed their tag line, A Unique Magazine. Definitely unique! I especially liked Covers #1 and #3... what are those things the guy is falling into on Cover #1?!

This one was always too weird for me, I didn't read it nor the reprints from it.

The top one is obviously the world's first mosh pit.

I wonder if Laurie knows about her grandpappy's story in the bottom one.

Craig Smith said...

The duotone is really ugly on those early covers. Give me Margaret Brundage art any day.

Evan Lewis said...

You're right, Craig. Those first two are lowpoints in WT history.

Yep, Cap'n. Laurie has featured that cover on her blog a time or two.

If you're lucky, Christine, you might score a copy of that April 1925 issue for under five hundred bucks. Let me know what those creepy critters are.
