During the 1950s, Abe Goodman—brother of Marvel Comics publisherMartin Goodman—was the largest buyer of cartoons in the world. Publishingout of New York City under the Humorama banner, Goodman churned outscores of cheap digest-sized magazines boasting inventive titles like Romp, Stareand Joker that featured hackneyed jokes, cheesecake photos and the publications’bread and butter, single panel pin-up cartoons.
These magazines were an unlikely proving ground for neophyte gag cartoonistsas well as a welcomed alternative to the daily grind of comic book sweatshops.In the 1950s and 1960s, these digests featured the likes of Playboy’s JackCole, Archie’s Dan DeCarlo and glamour girl legend Bill Ward. In additionto these three pin-up cartooning luminaries, other notables who contributedincluded longtime illustrator Jefferson Machamer, Basil Wolverton, MAD’sDave Berg (“The Lighter Side”), and future syndicated cartoonists GeorgeCrenshaw (Belvedere), Bill Hoest (The Lockhorns) and Brad Anderson (Marmaduke).Drawing from private collections of original art and thousands ofHumorama digests, editor Alex Chun has once again selected the best of theselong out-of-print images.
