Jack Cole has gone down in history as the creator of Plastic Man. However aside from kiddy books, his résumé also includes years of providing girly gags for Playboy (beginning in issue five). However, before Hefner provided him with a high profile outlet, he provided gags for magazines such as Humorama, under the name of "Jake". The following is a smattering of his Jake gags, all of which are taken from the thin but sturdy (saddle stitched!) Fantagraphics volume, The Classic Pin-Up Art of Jack Cole.
