FINAL PART OF MAD #1 - HUMOUR IN A JUGULAR VEIN...
JOHN SEVERIN was much more than 'just' an inker of HERB TRIMPE's pencils for The INCREDIBLE HULK, or his sister MARIE's work on KULL The CON-QUEROR - he was a mighty fine artist in his own right. He was so good that he was one of the primary cartoonists on the early MAD comic, though he later became more associated in many fan's eyes with Mad's rival, CRACKED magazine. (Which had the good sense to admit that it was "Number two in a field of one!")
Anyway, John's strip brings us to the end of our four-part tour through Mad's first issue. Hope you enjoyed it, and that you're soon let loose from those long-sleeved pyjamas that tie-up at the back. And don't worry - a nice young nurse will be around shortly to give you your medicine. You'll get outta here yet - trust me, I'm a doctor! Now, excuse me while I take this little pill and - ZzZzZzZzZzZ!
BONUS: The real 'Mad Men'.
