Above: The first of several from S. Gross. Gosh, imagine the upswing in enrollment at the Center for Cartoon Studies if this girl went door to door!
You can definitely see the Addams influence in Sam's early work.
Bo Brown's cartoon is great. Such a seemingly pedestrian couple of women in a benign looking picture. The gag line makes it all so hostile and funny.
Above: a number of cartoons concerned the KKK.
"Damn the consequences! If they want her that bad, they can have her!"
Above: I'm a fan of Al Ross' loopy, sketchy style. It almost looks to "rough" to be a final finish!
Did anyone notice what happened to Al Ross' signature in the column of signatures from the book's cover?
Above: click on the tower of artist's signatures to see what I mean.
Above: Erikson gives us elitist white humor! Yikes!
Above: Sure looks like those are Wednesday's pigtails! And the boy's built like Puggsly.
Above: Another Sam Gross cartoon. Nothing is sacred to this man. His new collection of cartoons, We Have Ways of Making You Laugh: 120 Funny Swastika Cartoons, will be out in March 2008 from Simon & Schuster.
Above: Well, it's probably better than a Bratz doll.
More KKK humor. Yeesh.
"You see dear, on opening day the Emperor throws out the first Christian."
Even the Christians are made fun of!
I love Reamer Keller's cartoons. His style is unmistakable.
Interlandi's great drawing skill is always delightful to linger over. I love her '60s bouffant.
