Humorama It had to happen. The chalky cheap but charming covers of the Humorama Line went slick on the cover in the 1970s. Worse yet, the models were now wearing clothes with more than one color! (A small step up...as you can see, the brother's Goodman still weren't ready to spring for REAL color, cheap bastids.)
Sigh. End of a pulp era...but the biggest change, other than Bill Ward's drawings getting worse, was that the models were now NUDE. Black and White nude, but NUDE. Sign of the times. Now that cuts down on your available talent pool...most of those anonymous swedes of the 1950s wouldn't work topless, so the line had to start running, (I hate to say it....forgive me...some skanks. That's right...gone were the glamor girls, but bring in the trailer trash.
