Every once in a while, in my weekly rummage through the local thrift stores, I come across a few old paperbacks that call out to be purchased not for the stories, which may or may not be any good, but for the covers. That’s the case here:
Sax Rohmer, of course, is the creator of Fu Manchu, but who is J. Lombardero? He’s an illustrator, obviously, but beyond that, I have no idea.
On the same trip, I bought three original paperbacks in the “Operator 5” series (which I’d never heard of before I bought the books). Perhaps I’ll scan the covers of those for a later post. There’s one, in particular, that’s absolutely wild.
