I've never actually seen 'The Continental', just know it from parodies on MAD, SNL, etc. This is a nice drawing, though. I don't know why there's something by Jack Cole in a magazine put out by college students in the 50s, except for a theory that since Hugh Hefner was an alum, he might have given them cartoons he rejected.
