And by R.L. Stine and Sam Viviano! Who later did Mad's Last Crusade cover. Sometimes I wonder if we'll ever track down all the parodies. After Mad's circulation reached 2 million in 1974, there were so many. Not sure if this is Dynamite (1974-1992) or Bananas (1975-1984), they each worked for both. Is it the original coloring?
It's been in the archive all the time, something I spotted the other day made it suddenly click as to where it was and I knew what I was looking for...Since you mentioned it been racking my brain as I remember the reveal at the end but surprised no-one else stepped forward.
I guess another find for the Raven.
It's the original color. I wil PM your memories. 5 pages of unmarked bliss.
