Jack Davis in Sick

Prior to returning to Mad in 1965, Jack Davis made the rounds at other humor magazines, having tenures at Trump, Humbug, Cracked, Panic and finally Sick before returning to the fold. I recently scanned some images from various issues of Sick circa 1962-1964 for Hank Harrison and I present them to you now since they are kind of rare in comparison to Davis' work elsewhere.
The first is from Sick 16 and is the rejected cover artwork from the same issue.

Next is from Sick 19's back cover.

Next is Sick 26 utilizing artwork from a Davis Christmas card. 

Finally, Sick 42 with another Christmas card.
