“With this issue of MANPOWER! number one, a new name enters the annals of physique illustration. Now in their second year of distribution, COLT STUDIOS creates the representation of the male nude with a unique theory: today, 1969, an enlightened society, experienced and at ease with nudity, is at last ready to appreciate a more tasteful, creative and original approach to it. Through the many talents of artist RIP COLT, this need is fulfilled. Equally at home behind a camera or at a drawing table, Mr. Colt brings to the quest of magnificent manhood the brilliant examples found in MANPOWER! number one. Before the release sometime in the near future of MANPOWER! number two, may we suggest you write to the COLT STUDIOS directly for any information or details concerning their many drawings and photographs. You will find the best means to do this on page forty-eight of this magazine.
