A further step toward purely imaginative humor is taken by the comic artists. I mean the intrinsically comic artists, and not the good artists who draw illustrations of jokes. George Bellows was a good and perhaps a great artist, and he used to enjoy illustrating jokes for the old Masses. He had a jovial sense of humor, too, and his jokes were good. Nevertheless his drawings never seemed to me intrinsically comic. They were dramatic, but there was no laugh in them. The laugh was in the caption.
