Real Gahan, Man

Monday Cartoon Day.

Over the years there have been several cartoonists who produced a Sunday page made of a lot of different cartoons. The most well-known example may be George Lichty's Grin and Bear it, but there were more. In the seventies Amrica's weirdest cartoonist Gahan Wilsn joined them with a Sunday only feature. It didn't run for a long time, probably because Wilson couldn't use his weirdest jokes for this family-friendly panel. Gahan went on to do more gags for Playboy and other big time magazines. Because recently it was announced that Fantagraphics is going to publish a complete collection of his Playboy cartoons, here are some of the Sunday pages.

Gahan Wilson for years contributed to The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Those type of cartoons found their way into his Sunday page by way of a regular panel feature subtitled "Future Funnies". He also had another subtitled panel in his Sunday page called "The Creep", a kind of really strange version of The Shadow.
Got any Sundays with those?
