32. Humbug #6: File Copy (Jan 1958)

"For the Christmas cover, I've been trying to think about something with Ebenezer Scrooge on it. And about the closest I got to an idea that satisfied me was you know that old poster of Uncle Sam saying 'I want you?' I was just wondering how Scrooge would look pointing out from the cover like that and just saying 'Humbug to the world out there.'"

 -Rolf Malcolm, Playboy, Dec 1957
