Jules Verne, Part 11

(Continued from Part 10)

You've seen the JESSE MARSH version!

You've seen the FRANK THORNE version!

Now-- bear wild-eyed witness to the wonder of the JACK KIRBY version!!!

Okay, okay... this isn't your typical, normal, average, "regular" adaptation of a movie.  Let's put it this way... NOT BRAND ECHH wasn't an accident.

Charlton's take-off on EC's MAD started life as EH! (Dec'53).  With issue #8 (Feb'55), the name was changed to FROM HERE TO INSANITY, then after 5 more issues, the name was changed again (while starting the number over from #1) to CRAZY, MAN, CRAZY!, which itself only lasted 2 issues.  Each issue (as far as I've been able to determine so far) featured the work of 1 or 2 artists at a time, including Dick Ayers, Steve Ditko, and Jack Kirby.  MANY years later, CRAZY would become Marvel Comics' own take-off on MAD.
