An excellent collection of naughty gag cartoons from Humorama done by none other than Dan Decarlo (1919-2001) of Archie fame.

Some may find it hard to believe that the big name comic artist behind the wholesome Archie series also did risque cartoons prior to that. His excellently rendered ladies, resembling more risque versions of Betty and Veronica, are worth seeing! Nobody can draw ladies today quite like Decarlo did. ( )

Dan DeCarlo's girlie gag strips manage the impressive task of balancing the saucy with the silly, and by (mostly) avoiding outright nudity and explicitly sexual situations, his gags end up being more charming and less prurient. His drawings of women are always voluptuous, and his renderings of men considerably less so, giving a certain power and dignity to his females. In the end, that's what makes these strips worth reading today - despite their cheeky objectification of women, these panels depict men as even bigger schmucks, and the careful balance so essential to the war between the sexes is elegantly maintained.
