  1. I noticed the first two were in the same issue, and would have to say Frank O’Neal’s cartoon from ’55 is my favorite. The way he drew the boxer’s nose here is probably pretty accurate in a lot of cases when they’ve been broken more than a few times. (Many times?) Never mind; I don’t want to know.
