“As one of the best magazines catering to men, we always enjoy looking back at some of the original publications that came before us. Man’s Life was one of the first magazines to combine gorgeous women with wartime adventure on print. The provocative cover art often featured barley dressed damsels in distress, accompanied by helpful tips for the contemporary man of the times. Hit the thumbs for a look at your grandfather’s favorite magazine stash.”
