    Gahan Wilson, Vividly Macabre Cartoonist, Dies at 89

    His work — seen in National Lampoon, Playboy, The New Yorker and other magazines — was full of visual surprises and black humor.

    Gahan Wilson, whose outlandish, often ghoulish cartoons added a bizarrely humorous touch to Playboy, The New Yorker, National Lampoon and other publications in the era when magazines propelled the cultural conversation, died on Thursday in Scottsdale, Ariz. He was 89.

    His stepson Paul Winters said the cause was complications of dementia, which Mr. Wilson had been dealing with for years.

    Mr. Wilson was known for visual surprises and black humor. A steward tells a couple on a cruise ship, “I’ve passed your complaints along to the captain” while, in the background, the captain — a violent-looking pirate — approaches. A man in a doctor’s office is reading an eye chart that says, in letters of diminishing size, “I am an insane eye doctor and I am going to kill you now,” while behind him a crazed doctor prepares to attack him with a knife.

  • My fave was one where a guy is saying to someone else "Man, I had to $h!t something awful!" while behind him and down the hallway a truly evil-looking creature is emerging from the bathroom.
