Will Elder - The Mad Cartoonists - part 10

More from the glory days of "Mad" the comic book from 1952, and the second Will Elder drawn and Harvey Kurtzman writted "Mole!"

The hash-markings and grit of the characters in this story make me stare at it for hours. They always have.

The EC standard of the twist ending, for this comic alone in their pantheon, was done for comedy rather than horror. But because there work had always had that extra weight to it, the humor does too.

Talk to you soon.
