S.J. Perelman (1904-1979), who as a humorist might be the one American who reasonably bears comparison to P.G. Wodehouse, was doing Erotic Mad Science way back when. Or more specifically, in a story “Captain Future, Block that Kick!,” published in the New Yorker in 1940, he begins thus.
I guess I’m just an old mad scientist at bottom. Give me an underground laboratory, half a dozen atom-smashers, and a beautiful girl in a diaphanous veil waiting to be turned into a chimpanzee, and I care not who writes the nation’s laws.
Waving something like that in front of Dr. Faustus is like waving a red flag in front of a bull or money in front of a United States Senator — vigorous action will result. In my case, the vigorous action is more Bespoke Art, in the form of a three-illustration sequence from Russkere, whose work has appeared here before (if not recently enough) in the form of a mad science chase-and-capture sequence some of you might recall.
Here is is his sequence. A girl in a diaphanous veil, a mad scientist, and a laboratory.
Zapped with mad science energies!
Resulting in a beautiful chimpanzee.
