Not so undercover assignment
Monday Cartoon Day
Continuing my look at the history of cartoon journalism, nest up is a rare gem.
For Help #9 Harvey Kurtzman sent his staffer Gloria Steinem to a New York Women only Turkish Bath (apparently before they became a favorite spot for homosexuals and Bette Midler). She was accompanied by a female cartoonist I have not seen before or ever since. Remember, this was before Steinem went undercover to a Playboy Club as a Bunny and made a name for herself.
I have two more samples from this period before jumping to the nineties. Is anyone has some suggestions for cartoon journalism (preferably in the popular media), I'd love to hear them. I have a big run of Entertainment Weekly magazines with stuff by Harvey Pekar, Chris ware and others... but am I missing something in between?
