Cartoons !

A long time ago, during the Cold War, I worked at an engraving shop & once in awhile people would come in with the weirdest shit. Mainstream printers wouldn't work with the average Joe wandering in off the street but we were a small company and we had a lot of weird old tech lying around. The basement was a complete trip.
Anyway, one day this young woman came in with some old engravings she wanted to get some prints made from. Apparently they were from a German Nazi era underground paper that was decidedly anti-Nazi. I believe there was some intrigue involved with them getting into her or her dad's or grandfather's hands. They were dirty and corroded but this is what we got. (We assumed any captions were set in type outside the illustration)
