Fotonovelas #5: More Glorious Covers


How is it that my life has led up to this point, where I'm spending this evening uploading trashy Spanish magazines for tens of thousands to see? Most of you will take one look at the subject matter and click away.... even less of you will take the time to look at them all, and even less to comment.  But that's okay.

You see, it's still a victory.  Over time, this post will get over a million views, and thus gradually these godforsaken rags will matriculate into the public consciousness ever so slightly. It's a long way from total enslavement of the public's mind to lowbrow pop artifacts, but it's a start.

In all seriousness, I do actually like these covers.  They're interesting in their awfulness, if that makes any sense.  If you can appreciate these as I do, then we are indeed kindred spirits.  Love 'em or hate 'em, there certainly will be more fotonovela posts to come. Enjoy.

  1. These are delightfully trashy. My favorite is easily ¡El Teporocho!

  2. I love that I don't need to bother reading the covers. And they seem to have a particular fascination with upskirts.

    1. And pretty legs, to be fair.

    2. Oddly enough, I too have a fascination with upskirts.

      And no kidding. There wasn't a bad pair of legs in the bunch.

  3. "El Teporocho" means The Wino. Just so you know.

    1. But it's not fair that Jack Stryker safely landed the "Airplane!" only to die at the hands of "El Teporocho".

  6. I always like when "COLOR" is in color. It's snazzy/seedy on old motel signs and looks even better here.

  7. Great stuff. I would have loved to have been there when the covers were staged and photographed. Just hearing the directions that were given to set the scenes would have been priceless.
