Wow!
Some of these works are better than the previous ones (for me, of course).
I didn't now Reamer Keller. His rushed, sketchy art is really great. I like so much his not-much-thought-out brushstrokes. Thanks for this post!

Cartoon Humor magazine published these cartoons full page in an 8 1/2" x 11" magazine, so the artwork probably looked more like the originals than smaller panels in slick magazines, where the lines would tighten up. If there was a problem with Cartoon Humor it's that it looks like it was a secondary market for cartoonists; like if they couldn't sell the joke to Stag or True they could always sell it to Cartoon Humor. That's my impression, anyway. I have another issue from 1952 and in the near future I will have more cartoons by these cartoonists, including Keller, Machamer, etc.
