It's Black Mask week, and I'm looking back at some of the best covers of the popular 1930s pulp magazine. One of the things I love about Black Mask is how silly the covers are (see the post below with the giant chicken foot).
Today's cover: Avoid women with cat-shaped hair. Clearly they are crazy cat ladies and have painted their cat's claws with poison nail polish. Bonus feature: PARDON MY POISON PLATTERS, which I can only guess are etiquette tips for the murderous dinner host. Also, MURDER IN ONE SYLLABLE, which presumably is, "DIE!"
