Strangely Believe It!

Speaking of Wally Wood, this is a Mad page written by Ernie Kovacs, the mildly strange comedian of yester-year. That first panel about J. Daniel Frump has a caricature of Jack E. Leonard, another comedian of decades ago.

Yet, when the panel was recycled into a 'Worst of Mad' special annual, believe it or don't, the face was altered into frumpier features for some reason.

The page above is lifted from Ger Apeldoorn's Fabulous Fifties blog, from a beautiful batch of Sunday page parodies by Wood and the other usual gang of idiots. Go check it out!

You gotta laugh. Mad was really something else, wasn't it? I've got the hardback volumes of the first 23 issues or so, when it was still a 'comic'. Terrific stuff.
