"I think they'll take the hot-dog competition hands down."

Here are some black and white cartoons from 1975 issues of PLAYBOY. It's nice to see cartoonists like Chon Day, Virgil (Vip) Partch, Kliban and others who have now passed on, still active at the time.

The Bogeyman'll get you if you don't watch out...

BOGEYMAN COMICS (spelled "comics" in the indicia and not "comix" for its underground origins), was founded by San Francisco Comic Book Company owner Gary Arlingon and artist Rory Hayes in 1969. The first issue was drawn completely by Hayes.

After issue #1 other artists were included, including this third issue, with Jack "Jaxon" Jackson on the cover, and interior art by no less than Simon Deitch, Jay Lynch, Greg Irons, Jeff Hayes (Rory's brother?), Spain, S. Clay Wilson and Rick Griffin. The stories are still loosely based on the EC tradition, but like most spins on those comics by the top underground artists, they have their own distinct style.

Thanks to Sir Real's Underground Comix Classix, who did the scanning and posted this comic online.

BOGEYMAN COMICS #3, published by Co. and Sons, First Printing, 1970.
