SUNDAY FUNNIES - MAD #9 - THE RAVEN



Here I sat weak and weary pondering over some forgotten lore and - Well, well, here is a MAD comicbook with THE RAVEN written by one of the greatest writers of all times, Edgar Allen Poe. How could MAD afford such a great writer? I tell you how: Wait around a hundred years or so, after the authurs die and his works become free under the Public Domain laws, that’s how!

With editor Harvey Kurtzman’s sharp pen directing artist Will Elder how to visually alter or distort the story without changing a word, and with Elder with some ideas of his own – well, it is a ride through insanity…. But good and funny! Look at the details.

Nevermore

Not only is this great Sunday morning comics, it got me to reread that poem. Who was the greater genius, the poet or the comic strip creator? Who, I ask you?
