Manhunt

Total Issues: 114

Manhunt boasted it was the world's best-selling crime fiction magazine, and was certainly the "gold standard" against which all other "tough" crime magazines of the period measured themselves. Starting in January 1953 as a monthly digest, it flirted briefly (from March 1957 to May 1958) with a larger format to enhance newstand sales. The latter was not a success however and it soon reverted to digest size and dropped to bimonthly. In all it ran for almost 15 years and notched up a very respectable 114 issues.

From January 1953 to March 1956 the cover read Manhunt Detective Story Monthly, but the magazine was always called just Manhunt in the table of contents.

Man Junior

Offshoot from Man with the same mix of pin-ups, cartoons, features and fiction. In its first issue an introductory editorial stated that the publication was designed to satisfy Man readers who had wanted the original mag to be weekly or even fortnightly, and publication of the new magazine was interleaved with the original. The name, Man Junior, represented the fact that the magazine initially appeared in a "pocket size".

The magazine was suspended during the latter years of World War II and, in March 1954, switched to a full-size magazine (similar to Man), although the pocket-sized magazine was continued the following month with the creation of Pocket Man.
