As I get older, I'm slowly getting rid of things I don't need. But before I do I'll share them with all you nice people.

Yell #3, 1 of 4
Another humor magazine I came upon from September 1966, sort of like MAD and the like but without the budget.
The magazine was edited by sometime MAD writer Sy Reit, who probably also wrote much of the material himself.
As you will see in the following pages and weeks to come, hardly any money is spent, as most of the magazine relies on stock photos and text pieces (and some pages with large margins which I cropped).
Whoever was in charge of pricing at the store where I bought this must not have looked inside, since they probably wouldn't have put this in the dollar bin if they knew it contained early work by Robert Crumb.

Much of the material here is at least a generation old and therefore sometimes has racist and sexist standards we wouldn't conform to today. I try, but can't always do a line-item veto. Remember, the story is not about them, though. You're not wrong to be offended, think of it like a friend you like hanging out with 95% of the time but once in a while they embarrass you. My own attitude is to move forward.
Many of the images I posted between 2011-2013 were disappeared by the image bank I was using then but I still have most of the scans and am bringing them back slowly. Be patient.
Some people don't realize you can make images bigger by clicking on them or that there are earlier postings beyond this page. Well, now you know. You're welcome.
