    Dan DeCarlo Breezy #14 Single Panel Gag Cartoon Illustration Original Art (Humorama, 1956). "Let's be realistic, when you buy shoes, don't you take them off?" This lovely lassie is just explaining herself to the very polite fitter. DeCarlo's clean but bold linework is striking and supple. It's no wonder he was such a popular artist at Archie Comics drawing Betty and Veronica. This gag was so popular with Marvel's adult imprint Humorama that they reprinted it twice more! It next appeared in the February 1965 issue of Laugh Riot, and then in the June 1970 issue of Stare. It was rendered in ink and ink wash over graphite on illustration board with an image area of 9" x 12.5". There is an alternate punchline written on the lower margin of the front, with the quoted one on the reverse side. In Very Good condition.
