The Best Of The Worst
here is the obvious question: A swastika?!?!
Is there a Nazi connection here or is this an innocent use of the old Indian sign?
Publisher Harold Hersey adopted a blue swastika as “The Symbol of Good Reading” for his line of pulp magazines, Magazine Publishers. When the company was purchased by A. A. Wyn in 1929, the swastika was replaced with an Ace of Spades. You can also see it here: https://pulpcovers.com/the-menace-of-the-flames/
The nazi swastika is sinistrogyrous, or, “rotates counter-clockwise”. But “sinister” helps to make a mnemonic connection with the nazis.
