VIP ad gnawseum
In the 1940s and 1950s, Virgil Partch was my favorite magazine gag cartoonist. I loved his surreal world, angular characters and literal visualizations of common phrases. When he was killed in a 1984 automobile accident, I decided I had to write a lengthy article to let young people know about Partch's peak years. It was published a year later in Nemo
14 (August 1985). In the course of researching the article, I discovered that Partch had drawn the same situation at least five times. So I grouped them together.
