Gahan Wilson's One-Stop Shopping

This original cartoon by Gahan Wilson may have been published in Playboy. Then again, maybe it wasn't. The documentation is vague and not easy to verify. A few words scribbled on the back of a framed drawing don't necessarily carry any weight. As a service to to future cartoon historians, please remember that it's always best to specify date and page number as well as the name of the publication.

Note:  Was this cartoon published in Playboy? If you know the publication history of this drawing, please let me know. Attempted Bloggery has a great many remarkable drawings with unknown or incomplete publication histories. If you're interested, you may review them here.
