Born 21 March 1924, VICTOR PREZIO became one of the most prolific and underrated pulp magazine and dime novel cover illustrators of the post WWII era. Active throughout the 50s and 60s, his work for Dell, Gold Key, Warren Publishing and others ranged from sports to sci-fi to western covers. Then of course, for the men’s pulp mags such as True Adventures and Real Men, he followed in the footsteps of contemporaries like Norem and Mort K in his portrayal of tough men of action and the dastardly deeds of Nazis. It was these images that occupied the time of servicemen from Korea to Vietnam and West Germany in foxholes and barracks alike. Victor died December 1976 at just age 52 and sadly, not much is known about him other than his illustrations.
