Back when I was a little kid, I got hooked on reading Mad Magazine. While technically a comic book, I would have denied reading comics. Mad didn’t have super heros or even stuck to one topic. It was a mash-up of funny advertisements, spins on current affairs, interviews, funny places Alfred E. Neuman would show his face, and reoccurring bits like Spy VS Spy. These two were always trying to kill each other. No words were ever spoken between the two, however they were certainly heck bent on taking the other out. Spy VS Spy was the first thing I thought of when I saw these two leaf hoppers facing off.
The next best thing in Mad, was the inner back cover contained a ‘Mad Fold-In’! These were my fav as you were presented with a dilemma and the answer was revealed by folding the page in. Ah, those were the days when simple paper folding could keep me occupied.
