    Description

    John Severin Cracked #107 Cover Painting Original Art (Major Publications, 1973). Sylvester P. Smythe is voodoo MAD on this cover! The shadow of Alfred E. Neuman loomed over Cracked in more ways than one. Major Publications often took pot-shots at their EC Comics competitor in an effort to legitimize themselves. MAD never responded. This cover is produced in acrylic paint on a 12.5" x 17" illustration board with a Rubylith layer for color hold-out separation. The overlay has a crease in it that does not affect the painting. Signed by Severin in the lower right image area. In Excellent condition. From the Cracked Vault Collection.
