If Mickey Spillane Wrote Nancy
This one comes from MAD Magazine, circa 1959. The name of the original article was “If Famous Authors Wrote the Comics,” (from the “High Flown Balloons Dept.,” of course), and featured dead-on parodies of not just the authors (who include the likes of Paddy Chayefsky, Edgar Allan Poe, Rudyard Kipling and Walt Whitman, as well as Mickey Spillane), but of the comics themselves, which include Peanuts, Dennis the Menace and Dick Tracy.
Notice the signature?
Actually, the art was by Wally Wood, and the writer was Frank Jacob. The piece originally appeared in the April 1959 issue of MAD, and was later reprinted in the Mad in Orbit collection.
