Ace and Bachelor

More gag cartoons from the forgotten genre of men's magazines. Sure, they're still around, but they're something completely different now. They were closer to Playboy (as it was then) for a lower-middle-class audience, but not hardcore porn. Many more text articles that had nothing to do with sex. Here are more cartoons from them. I imagine them something the archetypal henpecked husband usually voiced by Bill Thompson would read.

This one's from Ace volume 7, number 3, November 1963. Photobucket The next three are from Ace volume 7, number 6, May 1964.

Bob Schochet obviously inspired by Feiffer's Sick Sick Sick Photobucket While the more high-brow magazines only hinted at sex, the also-ran skin magazines weren't as subtle. Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Until I mention otherwise, these are from Ace volume 3, number 1, June 1959 Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket By comic artist Jay Scott Pike. Photobucket The bottom one is by Brad Anderson of Marmaduke fame. Photobucket Photobucket An attempt to do a cartoon of the “id” genre by Charles Dennis, from Adam volume 3, number 5, May 1959. Photobucket From Bachelor volume 2, number 4, June 1961. Photobucket More girlie cartoons next Thursday.
