325. “So, Dave, how do you like being a fascist?” Cartoon

August 3, 2011

Q: I remember reading a cartoon in NatLamp. Long ago. It depicted a couple of guys dressed in black SS looking uniforms, sitting at a table and having a few drinks. The caption read something like “So, Dave, how do you like being a fascist?” I’m looking for the author (it might have been Rodrigues), and if possible, the date of the issue it was in (I don’t want to have to thumb through all of my back issues). Does this ring a bell?

A: February 1972 (Crime!) issue, page 15, a cartoon by Gahan Wilson. (Thanks to Marcel for the answer.)


This is a Gahan Wilson cartoon, of that I am sure. I think it was in the crime issue (feb 1972), of that I am not so sure...

Turns up I was right! February 1972 crime issue, page 15. The exact caption is ''Well Dave -How do you like being a fascist?''
