But I do have a Hitler dartboard for you!
That's right, after the rousing success1 of the last Merchandising Week, I thought I'd return once more to the fray. For you!2

Since I was caught with my pants down...
I thought I'd return the favor!
HGP trivia: I just realized this pic was used by Hayden War for his Strummer Punching Hitler artwork.
Friday, August 28, 2009
But I still like punching best.
Not sure who created the first picture, but the second was found here.

This piece of what I can only assume is Soviet propaganda came from what I can only assume is an antifascist website.
I can only assume I should thank rcs for submitting this.

Not Hitler, but close enough.
Today, I was told to "Tidy Up."
So tidy up I did.
This was another work by Kukryniksy, the collective name of 3 cartoonists. It shows the editors of Krokodil magazine dumping out the remains of the Nazis.
Apparently the three men in the top corner are self-portraits of the artists.
I think about 3 or 4 people sent this one in to me, but rcs sent it first. I'm just going to assume Ali, Mark, and possibly Olaf also sent it at some time, to be safe.

In MY deck, the Hanged Nazi means...
I think the caption is in Dutch, and says something about the dream of someone in hiding. Anyone who actually has any knowledge of Dutch want to take a crack?
Thanks to Ali, who I too often forget to credit on submissions.

In honor of that, I'm putting up a pic that I've had on deck since I started the site:
There. I put it up. I hope you're happy.
HGP continues its streak of daily posting, after all.
Superman plans to deal with the world's worst racist and the world's most racist caricature in one ironic swoop in Superman #17, with art by Fred Ray.

I was very clearly told to give you this:

Despite a few technical flaws, it is the closest thing to HGP: The Movie that will probably ever be made, unless my spec script, Captain America Beats the Living Crap Out of Hitler for Three Hours Straight, is finally greenlighted (unlikely, as one of my non-negotiable stipulations is that Cap is either played by 1) Yours Truly, or 2) A Clone of Steve McQueen, circa 1962).
Thanks...I guess... to Olaf.

Cosmo appeared in The Secret Voice #1, written and drawn by Ronald Marcus in a story whose synopsis from the Grand Comic Database is worth quoting entirely:
An invisible super-intelligent insect uses his brain radio to direct Allied war strategy, send morale to Allies, drives Hitler to Hell with his voice, and helps build the atomic bomb.Comics are awesome.
You can find more about Cosmo's only appearance here.
Thanks Olaf, you've blown my mind.

And "No," I'm not as ashamed of that dated reference. At all.
Hot off of last Wednesday's presses, this is part of the wraparound cover to Captain America: Reborn #2, written by the inestimably rad Ed Brubaker, with art by Bryan Hitch and Butch Guice, and colors by Paul Mounts!

...And Daredevil Punching Hitler!
More joy from what I can only assume is Daredevil #1, with pencils by Charles Biro and inks by Bob Wood. Thanks to rcs and the Alibear, who both independently sent it from the Hitler Library, whose position on Hitler-Punching is still unclear to me.

Like that time that Hitler got choked...
I hate to repeat myself, but that link Mark gave me had much better quality versions of some pics Flex and I already put up. Plus, what do expect on a Sunday?
Which reminds me of the time that Alex P. Keaton got addicted to diet pills...

They have a fulcrum, dammit!
This is a caricature of the German-born collage artist John Heartfield, a Dadaist and Communist whose work I'm only really familiar with because the band Discharge used a piece as a album cover.
Thanks, Olaf! I see you apparently found this here.

But are you really complaining?

Come along for the ride, won't you?
Translation: "Pincers for the Pincers."
Alternate translation: "Suck it, douchebag."

Sweet, sweet Hitler Pinching. I'm hoping I can scrounge up enough of you to make this theme worthwhile.
Translation (as on Sunday):
What they wrote: The actions of the Social Democrats have pinched the Nazis (September 1932)
What happened: Before these laughable Socialist pliers could squeeze the National Socialist German Workers' Party, Hitler's hammer had destroyed the SPD.
Yeah, you might not want to brag about hammers...
Seriously, folks: I'm scanning my on-deck pictures for more pincer fun, but if you happen to find any, feel free to send them to HitlerPuncher @ gmail dot com.

From a field report, highlighting one of the may confrontations between Evil and Anus:
It's the middle of the night outside of Berlin. Dr. Goebbels sleeps fitfully, as if he knows something mean is lurking in the woods outside. The window of his picturesque little cabin is open, nothing but the cold night air moving through. A strong breeze beats through the forrest, trees creaking. The man moving through the cloudy night casts no shadows, makes no noise. Minutes later, he's through the window and inside. No lubrication, just two strong arms and one very long glove.
When it's all over, the man vanishes into the night. A note is left on the floor: You just got served. - The U.S. Proctological Corps
Probably a bit too specific...
You know, a lot of people make fun of the Bolshevist notion of art by committee, but Kukryniksy, a collective name of three cartoonists, did a decent job. Apparently, one would draw the faces, one the body and the last one colored it.
Both rcs and Ali submitted this independently.

You can read more about it here, but more or less, it's from a book refuting the claims of anti-Nazi cartoonists, which reprints the cartoons.
Such as this dandy little number:
From the link above, a translation of what the book claims:
What they wrote: Simplicissimus (a satirical magazine) suggested in January 1928 that the NSDAP would split so often that in the end only Hitler would be left.Of course, when all is said and done, it's a picture of Hitler hitting himself in the face with an axe. And that is good enough for me.
What happened: The NSDAP did not split, but Hitler was in fact left alone—but in an entirely different sense. Today in Germany there are no parties or party leaders other than Hitler.
Thanks to Olaf, who submitted this is time to make this pretty much the unofficial "Axe Week."
Saturday, August 8, 2009
Oh, it truly was a different time. Well executed drawing, though.
I have to man up and admit that I cannot remember who submitted this and I have no idea who created it.
UPDATE: Ali has told me it was her who sent it.

This mathematical proof of the bisection of Hitlers on a Euclidean plane was created by Ken Rolfe, a British citizen whose journal of cartoons from late in the war have been donated to the Cartoon Art Trust Museum in London.
Olaf tipped me off to this one.
Thursday, August 6, 2009
Oh, casual racism, why must you taint otherwise delightful anti-Hitler art?
Thanks to rcs, who discovered this here.

So, I saw a preview of Inglourious Basterds yesterday. I can't honestly say that it was technically a "Good" movie (in fact, in many ways it may be awful), but it almost seems to defy the description of "Good" or "Bad." I can say this: it was as close to watching HGP: The Motion Picture as I am ever likely to see.
So if you're the sort of person who likes that sort of thing, it's the sort of thing you'll like.
Thanks to rcs for the picture, which he found here.

Anyway, speaking of sports legends, lets have a little aphorism about rugby vs. soccer (football to our friends in foreign lands):
"Football is a gentleman's game played by ruffians and rugby is a ruffian's game played by gentlemen"
Good job gentlemen.
And, like football (soccer to our friends in domestic lands), I suppose these English fellas couldn't play a German without a few penalty kicks...to the face.
Thanks Olaf, for the submission. No art credits, sadly.
EDIT: Also, hearty thanks to Ali, whom I forgot also submitted this.

He got punched.
Adolf in Blunderland, a (duh) parody of Alice in Wonderland was written by James DyrenforthMax Kester, amd illustrated by Norman Mansbridge. It was published in 1939. Thanks to rcs, who discovered this here.
