'Spitting on The Sheriff': More Charles Rodrigues cartoons, circa 1966

Hopefully you enjoyed the recent post of ''Strictly Personal' illustrations by Charles Rodrigues', because I've just stumbled onto an old paperback collecting some of his one-panel magazine cartoons.

- Follow the link to that previous post for some bio and background links about this cartoonist who was often known for his 'sick' material - - especially when he began working for National Lampoon in the 1970s.

'Spitting On The Sheriff And Other Diversions' was first published in paperback in 1966. ▶
According to Rodrigues' intro notes, many of the cartoons within had originally appeared in the magazines Stag, Male, Men, For Men Only, and Rogue, and some had never appeared in print before.

Scroll down for a few excerpts, click on the images to enlarge in a new window.

Truth be told, the reproduction of many of the cartoons in the book was pretty poor, so I've concentrated on some highlights that 'read' more clearly.

Thank you so much! My copy of this book is yellowed, brittle-paged, and worn out from years of re-reading. Looks like this book will never be reprinted, so finding it online here was a real joy.

Strangely enough, this book was for me what "A Catcher in the Rye" was to most kids my age. I still have my copy.
