I have to confess that as much as I loved True West magazine growing up, I never really thought the cartoons were all that funny. Today, looking back at our vast archives, which we now have online, quite a few of them are even less than funny. And a few are deep in the Cringe Worthy Zone.
True West Archives, 1953 (first issue!)
True West Archives, August 1955
A few are prescient. Check it out:
True West Archives, date missing
And one or two hit close to home:
True West Archives, April 1964
Some are just plain dumb:
True West Archives, July August, 1959
Now back to the cringers:
True West Archives, Jan-Feb, 1960
True West Archives, July-August, 1959
"Is that the new Mustang?"
And a few just seem perverse by today's standards:
"Hey, Dude, are you staring at my middle pistol?"
And here's another one that needs a caption:
True West Archives, Winter 1953
One or two just might make it into the magazine!
"Hey, folks. It's just lines on paper."
