Rocket Skis.

Oh, i’m sorry i don’t think you heard me…ROCKET SKIS!!

Artist Earle Bergey can take much of the credit for the *Miniskirts on the Moon* style of portraying female characters in classic pulp science fiction, which i think is what makes this cover so notable.

Not only is it’s female protagonist showing little skin, but she’s front & centre, armed & blasting monsters with her square-jawed male counterpart, tastefully doing the same in the background. Oddly progressive for 1946.

Though seemingly to compensate, the interiors are wall-to-wall miniskirts:)

Thrilling Wonder Stories, december, 1946.
