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.
The next three are from Ace volume 7, number 6, May 1964.
Bob Schochet obviously inspired by Feiffer's Sick Sick Sick
While the more high-brow magazines only hinted at sex, the also-ran skin magazines weren't as subtle.
Until I mention otherwise, these are from Ace volume 3, number 1, June 1959
By comic artist Jay Scott Pike.
The bottom one is by Brad Anderson of Marmaduke fame.
An attempt to do a cartoon of the “id” genre by Charles Dennis, from Adam volume 3, number 5, May 1959.
From Bachelor volume 2, number 4, June 1961.
More girlie cartoons next Thursday.
