Harold McCauley created this tense, action-packed, gritty, and dramatic illustration for an-as-of-yet unidentified pulp title, circa 1940s. The image shows a moment of intense combat with a faceless villain wielding a lead pipe above a cowering figure in fedora. The Orientalist underground lair, complete with skulls and spider webs round out the creep-factor in the classic, over-the-top, published pulp fiction illustration.
