"Meanwhile, in Metropolis" -- Meta-Humor at Its Grandest

This is from the twisted mind of Michael O'Donoghue, via the June 1971 issue of National Lampoon.

But, note the second credit.  Yes, that's the real Wayne Boring who provided the art!  You can recognize his style in each character's face and pose.  And the payoff final panel!  It's great to see that "Uncle Wayne" had such a great sense of humor!

See you Thursday.
