Al was the editor of MAD magazine from 1955 untill 1984-but most recall him from his insane art-like this









Rest well,Al-your art was a BIG inspiration for what I do.

That s**t is amazing.  Cheesy subject matter but done with panache and 100% commitment.  You don't see that much these days.

That's a bummer. MAD Magazine was a must read when I was a kid in the 70s. In addition to loads of the magazines, I had tons n' tons of the Super Specials, reprint paperbacks, etc.

I had all of those issues in re-print. The first cover art you see had a hideous story about a kid addicted to heroin and a very sad ending. The story, if I remember, was called "Monkey On My Back".   

My favorite EC  cover was the one with the guy with the meat cleaver in his head coming back to life as a zombie and confronting his killer.  Truly classic artwork, and on par only with the underground artwork of Eerie publications magazines such as "Weird" and "Tales From The Tomb."

YES!!! Remember this little tale of decapitation? My mother saw this one when I was little and took the magazine and threw it in the trash. Didn't stop me from finding it later at a local farmer's market a few years back  Smile

Anyway, I present to you in all it's B&W gory (or umm..gloryI Chopped Her Head Off!

Ha ha, so you too have fallen under the spell of Eerie pubs, eh, old friend?

Here's a nice page that has some reprints, one of which, "The Thing In The Cellar" was one of my faves, and one I still have in my surviving set of magazines.  Enjoy!
