** Going further, Brundage's ''Weird Tales'' covers served as TropeMaker for pulp science fiction and fantasy's take on this trope, and imitation of her style lies at the crossroads of StockShoutout and the WeirdAlEffect. Compare the famous poster for Film/AttackOfThe50FootWoman with her illustrations, for instance.

* ContemptibleCover: The covers of the original run were notoriously {{fanservice}}y, featuring well-developed women scantily-clad or [[SceneryCensor nude but obscured]] and frequently ChainedToARock, experiencing some form of MonsterMisogyny, GoGoEnslavement, or otherwise [[DistressedDamsel distressed]]. The name of their most prolific artist, and the one responsible for many of their most risque covers? [[SamusIsAGirl Margaret Brundage]].
** In fact, her seeming [[AuthorAppeal fondness for female bondage scenes]] lead authors like Howard, Quinn, and others to include such scenes in their stories even when they played no real role in the plot. Why? [[MoneyDearBoy Because the stories that got the cover art meant bigger paychecks for their authors.]]
