One of my inspirations for the series of "Real" Bob's Burgers portraits appeared in "National Lampoon: The Very Large Book of Comical Funnies- A Never Before Published History of the Comics" (1975). It is an article entitled "Harsh Realities", written by P.J. O'Rourke and illustrated by Wayne McGloughlin. This is a classic of mid-Seventies comics. I totally recommend checking it out if you can find it. The 160 page, square bound volume also includes: "The Fall of the House of Bau", by P.J. O'Rourke and Neal Adams, "Il Showdown a Rio Jawbone", by Tony Hendra and Russ Heath", and "The Lost E.C. Comics, by Chris Miller, Walt Simonson, Russ Heath, Berni Wrightson and Howard Chaykin, among many other worthy scholarly articles.
