As mentioned last time, HARVEY KURTZMAN wrote almost the entire contents of MAD #1, which featured art by Kurtzman himself, along with WALLY WOOD, JACK DAVIS, JOHN SEVERIN and WILL ELDER.  Although Mad is probably best known as a satirical magazine, the comicbook version is an equal delight, full of rampant lunacy and great artwork by masters of their craft.  At only 23 issues, it wouldn't be impossible to acquire a full set, but you'd probably still need a small Lottery win to be able to afford them.

Anyway, that's more than enough padding from me - you'll be glad to know that it's now time to enjoy the pretty pictures.
