These dusty old paperbacks were the zenith of mens comics in the 1950s. It was called pin-up girl, or good girl art.
I’ve flipped through them, and was shocked. It’s not that there are pictures of near-naked women, but the “humor” which, today, would be classified as misogyny.
Donald Flowers cartoons employ so may stereotypes about women, I got uncomfortable reading the book.
Likewise, look at the Sam Cobean cover.
Cobean drew for the New Yorker, the most sophisticated magazine in the United States, at least by reputation. The cover: a fat dude and a hot chick. Is that intellectual or smart, at all?
This material was drawn in the period just before the “sexual revolution”.
