Snafu, 2 of 4

Last week when I posted the first few pages from this issue of Atlas' Snafu, I ended with the cliffhanger where there was a promise of a nude photo on the next page. Here it is, fellas...
Such was the level of humor in this magazine from this, the second issue of Snafu from January 1956. It was all written by an undoubtedly overworked Stan Lee. The majority of art, like this, was drawn by an also probably overworked Joe Maneely.
The parodies of gag cartoons were also a feature in a feature in Riot. Here we see imitations of William Steig, George Price, Virgil Partch, and Syd Hoff.
And Saul Steinberg,Sam Cobean,Charles Addams, Peter Arno, and Otto Soglow.
Howard Post did this article but is not credited in the contents page. Here he caricatures Guy Lombardo, Spike Jones, Gene Krupa, Benny Goodman, and Louis Armstrong.
And Woody Herman, Armstrong again, and Dave Brubeck.
A lot of things that take up two pagers with the teaser “Turn the page to see this” followed by the punchline.
