Irwin Hasen Does A Comic Stripper

Irwin Hasen, the terrific artist of the Dondi comic strip and DC Golden Age comic books was at a New York comic book convention last year.

I showed Irwin a mock-up of Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings that I was working on. I asked him if he might have any appropriate material. He flipped through the mock-up of the book and said, “Nope, I never did any sexy stuff”. A pity I thought since I like Hasen’s art so much. But, I did just find this nice sketch Irwin delineated of a stripper when I was going through some stuff in my collection this morning. What’s really neat about this drawing is that it’s from a cartoonists get-together (in Daytona) and in the audience watching the stripper is is Leonard “On Stage” Starr, Frank “Mr. Abernathy” Ridgeway, Dick “Hi and Lois” Brown, Dick “Morty Meekle” Cavalli and Irwin himself. Themselves a bunch of strippers!

So, you won’t find Hasen in the Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings book, but here he is on the Arf Lover’s blog for your viewing pleasure. And if you would like to see the 69 cartoonists who ARE in the book (including Dick Brown) order your copy by clicking on the cover below. And, don’t forget, there’s a preview of the book here.

    That sketch would make a good start for Volume 2. Not only is it a Dirty Drawing, but it depicts all those Clean Cartroonists as well!

  2. Craig Yoe Says:

  3. Mack Says:

    I preordered this a while back and Amazon still hasn’t sent it. Those bastards.

  4. DJ David B. Says:

    I ordered from Amazon too, when I first heard about the book. Last time I checked they didn’t even have a release date yet. I guess the folks at Amazon don’t read this blog.

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
