The variety of posts is what I enjoy in this forum.  Thanks for that link.

 I was an avid Mad reader in my youth and was even an "EC member addict"  with a membership card to prove it, and I still have several dozen issues from the 50s.  I thought for sure I had issue 1 and the composition book issue, but the earliest I find now is issue 10, "The face on the bar room floor". I may still have an Alfred E. Neuman T shirt among my old running gear; guess I should look it up and wear it for riding since my running days are well behind me.

I have always thought Giulio Cesare Carcano kinda looked like Alfred E Newman....

Ha thatís funny I just drew this for a little project - my ode to the classic -  interestingly Alfred E. Newman as an archetype character has been around for a long time.  MAD picked him up for the modern era.  Iíll have to dig around and find the history for everyone.

Never cared for "comic books".  Then I discovered Mad.
