Obscure cartooning “how to” fanzine apparently from the ’50s. I was uncertain of the actual publication date but the official copyright registrations for Vol. 1 of this series (Catalog of Copyright Entries, found via Google Books) appear to be for 1954-1955. There’s also a second volume in this series that started in 1967.
Contents include: Cartooning for Trade Journals; How to Prepare and Submit Cartoons; Eight More Types of Cartoon Gags; How I Earn Over $100 a Week Cartooning for the Trade Journals; How to Sell Your Cartoons; How to Write the 7 Types of Cartoon Gags; lots of gag cartoons; a few pages of comics; more.

I’m not certain but it may be that some (or all) of the credited artists are pseudonyms.

>> Steven Ogden Collection <<
This item comes from the collection of the late Steven Ogden, fanzine author, publisher, researcher and my friend. Steve was active in fandom (SF/fantasy and comics), including APAs (FAPA, CAPA-Alpha) and publishing for decades under the Spotted Zebra Press/New Spotted Zebra Press banners (with his wife, Vicki). His publications include the massive Brad W. Foster Checklist of Published Works from the 20th Century, Edgar’s Journal, Ouroborus and many others.
