Bernard Wiseman: Yankee Go Home?

Cartoonist Bernard Wiseman depicts an American abroad in an undated color cartoon. Judging by the architecture, this may be set in Moscow. At any rate, it's some place where the locals appreciate the value of the dollar.

The gag cartoon is intended for a men's magazine. The woman is drawn with the impossible proportions more or less typical for this genre. The wordplay is a bit forced, as go home is not quite the same as come home.

This original gag cartoon artwork comes from the estate of comic book legend Joe Simon. It was sold last year by Heritage Auctions.
