Both of these extremely unusual magazines appeared in 1957. Both were standard 11 inches tall but only 4 1/2 inches wide. They also featured unusual stories and lots of great full pg pin-up photos. Neither lasted long in this format with one folding and the other becoming full size by the middle of 1958.
