Okay, this has nothing to do with anything except it's just neat-o. Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual has an onsite application called a Pulp-O-Miser.

As you can see they are even look pre-worn to give it a more authentic appearance.
Pulp-O-Miser claims to be the brain-child of mad scientist Cornelius Zappencackler but is fact from writer and illustrator, Bradley W. Schenck. Bradley is also the talent behind Retropolis: Art of the Future That Never Was
So go ahead and create your own circa 1950 sci-fi mag cover with Pulp-O-Miser.
