Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings in the N. Y. Post!

I’m excited! Carole Postal just let me know that Sunday’s NY POST had a cover feature where they “reached out to some of” their “favorite pop culture junkies” to ask what they would buy these days with a few bucks in their pockets. Jeff Ayers of the Forbidden Planet said, “Craig Yoe’s Clean Cartoonists Dirty Drawings. It’s a weird mishmash of artists, contemporary and classic–who used to do Mad (to) Archie–doing naughty stuff. It’s mostly a cheesecake book, where you’re seeing artists doing something you didn’t possibly think they could ever come up with”.

And here’s what some other people have been saying about Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings lately:

“For the sheer joy of sex, we have Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings in which the incorrigible Craig Yoe has assembled furtive works by such otherwise respectable cartooners as Cliff Sterrett, Carl Barks, Paul Murray, Harry G. Peter, Martin Branner, and Stan and Jan Berenstain (to name a few) — all of whom are revealed as secretly lusting after the curvaceous gender, the nuder the better. Each display is accompanied by a short and informed biography of the cartoonist. Among the pictures are such rarities as Joe Shuster’s scantily clad ladies doing unspeakable things and a surprisingly chaste Wesley Morse. Not so rare, a handful of Virgil Partch’s cavorting nudes. Some other cavorting by VIP nudes was accomplished on the cover of the first issue of Playboy, announcing the publisher’s proclivity for cartoon sex. Other indecencies in the book include a Billy DeBeck rendering of Snuffy Smith pissing in the snow and some suspiciously Ditko-esque bondage bimbos usually associated with fetish artist Eric Stanton, with whom Steve Ditko shared a studio during much of his New York period, roughly 1958-1966.”
–R.C. Harvey/Rants and Raves

Harvey is always long-winded ;-) so just enough room for a few more recent brief excerpts:

“Looks Great!”
–Strange Ink

“Naughty!”
–Glorious Nonsense

“Treasures!”
–Playboy magazine
