    Dan DeCarlo Joker December -1957 Gag Cartoon Illustration Original Art (Humorama, 1957). "These are MY pajamas, don't try and talk me out of them!" 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 March 1966 issue of Zip. Created in ink and ink wash over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 9" x 12". Signed "DSD" in the image area. Toned, with dust shadows along the edges, and light handling wear. In Very Good condition.
