As long as I have my MAD reprints out (see the Jack Davis hilarity of our last post HERE, --and scans this time are from the "SUPER MAD" paperback collection from 1979), let's dig into some additional side splitters written by Don Edwing, with illustrations by another all-time favorite artist of mine, the great Bob Clarke. So okay, the purpose of this excursion into the "True-to-Form Dept." is to probe cartoon characters' innermost thoughts and emotions-- but in the grand MAD scheme of things, to add a Freudian dimension to the stars of the strips! Very funny stuff.
(Originally presented in the July 1973 issue of MAD #160.)
These are all great. The Archie at the bottom cracked me up. And what's the basis of that catty one? Apartment 3G, maybe?
I had the original issue that was in. I remember it well. Makes me wonder how many people today would remember Tumbleweed. What a great strip that was.
That's the Brenda Starr, Reporter comic.
Per GCD (though I don't think I scanned them in the exact order)
Dr. Rex Morgan; Trixie Flagston; Lois Flagston; Dagwood Bumstead; Mr. Dithers; Olive Oyl; Popeye; Mary Worth; Brenda Starr; Scamp; Dennis Mitchell; Henry Mitchell; Andy Capp; Charlie Brown; Maggie; Li'l Abner; Daisy Mae; Archie Andrews; Veronica Lodge
I have that Super Mad paperback from childhood as well and loved those comic panels.
yuk yuk yuk!!
# 160 is one of my favorite issues, especially due to the high school yearbook parody, and the updated version of "Going My Way," with Bing Crosby as the veteran priest and Donald Sutherland (!) as the hip new one.
