Cracked Magazine, January 1978
Growing up, there wasn't much I loved more than a good Cracked, Crazy or MAD magazine. They each had their strongpoints: Crazy had Marvel superheroes, Cracked had lots of monsters and the gorgeous artwork of Severin, and MAD.... well, MAD was just awesome from front to back.
I still have all of my old magazines, and each one reminds me of a certain time. The above Heaven Can Wait issue of Cracked was purchased at an airport when I flew from Boston to visit relatives in Ohio. I'd never seen Heaven Can Wait (thirty years later, and I still haven't), but that was beside the point. Who cares if your eight year old brain missed half of the pop culture references, it was still a joyous read all the way around.
So, click here to download the entire February 1978 issue. Why'd I choose this one to scan? No reason, really, I hesitate to scan an old MAD magazine since their backissues are currently available for sale on CD -and I don't want to step on any toes there, if you know what I mean. Depending on how many of you download this issue, I may scan some more issues of Cracked and Crazy. Let me know what you think.
