Eh! #3, 1 of 2

Charlton's foray into the brief boom of parody comics in the wake of Mad. This third issue is from April 1954.

Like much of the interior art, this is by Dick Ayers.
For some reason, most of the humor comics didn't have as many ads as the regular comics.
Parody of Mutiny On the Bounty. No comic would parody something nineteen years old today.
Most humor magazines swipe caricatures from other artists' caricatures from the “lollipop” school, with heads that could be on any body, so I credit Ayers with apparently drawing his own Charles Laughton.
This is apparently an original Clark Gable as well.
