Are you a fan of Kurtzman's Mad? Or Cracked? Then you must see Ross Andru and Mike Esposito's historic Mad-imitation comic, collected here. Three ground-breaking, laugh-filled issues were published before Bill Gaines sued the magazine's distributor, shutting down production of the magazine--even though Gaines lost the lawsuit. Notable spoofs here include Shane, Hondo, Stan Freberg, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Mike Hammer, Flash Gordon, The Invisible Man, Gunga Din, and the 1950s horror film classic, The Thing!

Andru and Esposito never produced more issues. Essays from noted comic book historians and tons of documentary material. Here is MAD's most noteworthy competitor, in full color.

Reprinted on heavy coated paper and a treasure to behold, for fans of MAD as well as comic book collectors, fans and anybody looking for a good laugh. Completely remastered color and an essay from noted comics historian Ron Goulart. Andru & Esposito went on to find fame with a variety of DC titles, including Wonder Woman, Metal Men, The Flash and the lost dinosaurs in Star Spangled War Stories. But their hilarious and doomed satire magazine still stands as one of the best things they ever did together.

Note: These copies may have slight scuffs and/or bumped corners, although the one I'm reviewing here is as new.
