My Internet pal Jack Badelaire digs old Men’s Adventure fiction – you know, stuff like The Executioner, The Destroyer, Nick Carter: Killmaster, Ninja Master, Able Team, et al – as much, or more, than I do.
But he’s not satisfied just reading old paperbacks until they crumble to dust in his hands, he blogs about them. And now, he’s launching an e-zine, Hatchet Force Journal, available at Amazon for the Kindle, dedicated to their testosterone-fueled legacy – as well as the genre’s present and future.
Early this morning, I came across the cover image that Jack had created for his ‘zine, and as a guy who made his living for 25 years as a graphic artist and art director, I thought it could use some improvement. Fortunately, Jack agreed. I’ll also be doing the covers for future issues.
