I'm guessing you love old school illustrators and hearing about them as much as I do, so I think you'll really like the winter 2013 issue of Illustration magazine (number 40).
There's a low res previews here (you can't read it but you can view thumbnails of the cool art).
Check out the article on Bruce Minney, great "manly" illustrator of men's mags, paperbacks and ads -- with snarling rats, blazing guns, menacing Nazis and, of course, plenty of gals with va-va-voom!
