Francis, you might be surprised to discover that the term "warai-e" means shunga (erotic prints), not comic prints. "Warai" was slang for a different kind of bodily release than laughter.
The genre of books of comical fiction and illustration is referred to as "kokkei-bon," and cartoons of political satire like this one as "fushi-ga." These terms will help you to get into the subject further.
