George Gross (1909-2003) was a great pulp magazine cover artist. His first pulp cover assignments were for Mystery Novels Magazine and Double Action Western, which were both Winford Publications. George Gross next found work at Fiction House, where he soon became their top illustrator. He painted hundreds of freelance pulp covers for Action Stories, Air Stories, Baseball Stories, Complete Northwest, Detective Book Magazine, Fight Stories, Football Stories, Jungle Stories, North West Romances, and Wings.

Like all pulp artists, it was all about the DAMES, dames in trouble, dames takin’ charge, dames shootin’ and lovin’ and even being brutalized by Japanese prison camp gaurds. George knew his way around the female form, living to be 94, still painting dames up to his death.
