Gags by Earl Engleman

Earl  Engleman was born in Pittston, PA on February 25, 1927. He was a professional cartoonist who began his career in an advertising agency after serving in World War II; his gag cartoons, which featured the humorous side of everyday life, have appeared in a number of magazines and newspapers, including Good Housekeeping, Saturday Evening Post, Better Homes and Gardens, The Wall St. Journal, Woman's World, The National Enquirer and USA Weekend.  While Engleman was a prolific cartoonist there was never a solo collection of his work published.  That is why I thought I'd share some of my collection here:

























Since the late 1950s, Engleman was also creating risque humor cartoons for the adult market.  Engleman's most significant output was for magazines such as Zowie, Laff Time, Sex to Sexty and various Humorama publications; as well as 150 Cartoons, Good Humor, Cartoon Carnival and other Charlton Publications cartoon magazines.  By the 1970s his cartoons got significantly raunchier and outrageous.  Some examples are shown below:















Earl Engleman passed away in Florida in 2012 at the age of 85.
