    Dan DeCarlo Humorama Gag Cartoon Illustration Original Art (Timely Features/Humorama, c. 1957). "And, get this, for an encore she lets her hair down!" Dan DeCarlo was working for both Archie and for Atlas Comics (Marvel's 1950s publishing name) at the same time this cartoon was published. His Archie's work was iconic and easily recognizable, but it's not hard to see it here as well! A lovely gag, that was reprinted in the May 1961 issue of Humorama, and again in August 1969 issue of Popular Jokes. Created in ink and ink wash over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 9.5" x 12". Signed "DSD" in the image area. Toned, with dust shadows along the borders, and light handling wear. In Very Good condition.
