Sick #51, April 1967, 4 of 4

The last of the fifty-first issue of Sick from March 1967. The other three parts were posted last week and the week before that and the week before that.

Sick would often profile popular comedians of the time. This portrait of London Lee was drawn by Joe Simon.
“The Professor” is an artist that I've only seen in Sickand I always wondered about him. The editorial clears up one part of the mystery for me. Not.:

“You may have noticed the fabulous artwork in certain SICK articles that are signed ”The Professor”. Who is The Professor? Well, all we are at liberty to disclose is that he is a bona fide faculty member of one of the country's leading art colleges. If enough people write in he may be tempted to reveal his identity.”
Angelo Torres
If any of you were wondering what the original art for some of these magazines looks like, here is one example.
Art from the Motorpsycho article (see first installment) is recycled for the back cover ad parody, or maybe it was the other way around, but here it is anyway.
And this is what the original for it looks like.


  1. Harry Borgman fesses up to being The Professor at

  2. London Lee still performs comedy in Florida, last time I checked.
