    Dan DeCarlo and Rudy Lapick Laugh Comics # 164 Complete 6-Page Story Original Art (Archie Comics, 1964). A bare hint of nudity and a suggestion of gender confusion lend a provocative edge to this offbeat entry. Schoolgirl pals Josie, Pepper, and Melody stage a life-drawing class and enlist several neighborhood guys as students. The boys are disappointed to find one of their own crowd as the model -- and so they improvise. A nude figure of Melody is suggested in an un-erased penciled image on the splash page. DeCarlo caricatures himself on the third page, as the boy in the ragged T-shirt. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 12" x 17.5". Logotype shows light staining. Excellent condition.
