As an adult, I can perhaps appreciate MAD magazine as the better quality humor mag over Cracked; however, back in the day, I lived and died for the next issue of Cracked. This magazine was like crack cocaine for me and my elementary/middle school friends. It trumped MAD because it rarely dealt with politics or adult oriented films. Instead, it centered on (1) monsters, (2) Star Wars and (3) sitcoms like Mork & Mindy. What more could a boy growing up in the 1970's ask for?
I've scanned 15 covers (and one Star Wars themed back cover) for your viewing enjoyment. Visit my Flickr set to view them at full size.
Update [3/10/13] I realize the Flickr slideshow viewer sucks. I'll have a rehash of this post coming before too long with a better way to view these old covers.
