Holiday Gift Ideas: Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings

Clean Cartoonists Dirty Drawings

Over the years, Craig Yoe has put together some of my favorite compilations of classic cartooning (Weird But True Toon Factoids, the Arf series of books) and his latest project, Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings, is another winner. As the title suggests, it’s a saucy compilation of cartoons, but the content is largely PG-13. It’s a fun (and quite affordable) way to add a little spice to your favorite cartoonist’s stocking.

    WARNING: If I understand the ratings system i think most of the art in “Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings” would not get a “PG-13 “but an “R”. Most are a mild “R” as they say (nekid cartoon boobies–oh, my), though a very few of the drawings might be “X”. Just an FYI.

    Holy cow, Chuck Jones did dirty drawings? I never knew he had it in him. Craig, you should have featured some from Bakshi. Why am I not surprised that R. Crumb is doing the introduction to this book? That man is the KING of dirty drawings. Fantastic. I also love the “Arf” books. I want this so bad. Here’s hoping that Old Saint Nick isn’t an old prude.

    Is it too late to make a “Bob Kane had his ghosts do that too?!?” joke?

    joe, actually a friend of mine and comics historian when he saw my new book also commented that the bob kane “dirty drawings” probably were ghosted by an assistant. i think there’s a 50/50 chance. kane WAS pretty good at humor stuff IMHO and a bit of a ladies man i gather, so i can see him doing these (rather nice) drawings…or not.
