This may be the greatest post ever.
These are awesome! There are a ton of original Mexican pulp art paintings for sale at the American Visionary Art Museum here in Baltimore. I hafta get my hands one of them someday...
Happy birthday to me!Thanks Monster Brains, I love this stuff!
The 17th piece (an invisible man punching a robot) looks like it was 'borrowed' from from an old Golden Key Comic (Magnus Robot Fighter, Vol #1, 1963). Some of the other robot-themed pieces probably were, as well. Still this is an awesome collection.
these are completely awesome.
Thanks so much for letting me know this was in a book! I just ordered it, been looking for an inspiring art book, and this really wowed me!Awesome! Thanks again!

The Taschen book "Mexican Pulp Art" is comprised of pieces from Ted Frankel's collection. Ted started Uncle Fun here in Chicago, and just this week, while I was there, they had a hefty stack of the original cover paintings for sale. If you dig this stuff and you live in Chicago, you really need to get over to Uncle Fun.
