    Cover by Bob McCartney. Stories and art by Steve Ditko, Basil Wolverton, Bob McCartney, Joe Pena and Bob Weber. Charlton's Mad imitator continues its hit-or-miss parodies of 1950s pop culture. Noteworthy is a rare early piece with art by Steve Ditko, in which his inimitable, nascent style is so cartoony, it resembles Don Martin's early work in Mad. Plus a few pages by Mad contributor and comics legend Basil Wolverton, including some Rube Goldberg-type inventions. A parody of Al Capp's Li'l Abner. Spoofs of 1950s advertising, including corsets, stereo systems, and home cleaners. Insanity Comes to a Pompeii Party; I Was a Schizoid Psychotic; Schizograms; Inspector Fink; Party Games; Inside Mr. America; Modern Jazz Pianist; The Misfit; The Century's Most Practical Inventions; Insanity's All-Time All-American Team; Starlight Starbright; The Plain, Unadulterated, Really Varnished TRUTH About Lil Grabner EXPOSED!; Switch to Waterfront; Hypnotism for Husbands; Hollywood's Exciting Moonglowsuits; Do You Take What It Gets? Final issue under this title; series continues as This Magazine is Crazy (1957) #2. 8.5-in. x 11-in., 64 pages, PC/PB&W. Cover price $0.10.
