My contribution to MAD #515 -- a solo Dork Side strip in the Strip Club section -- marks my twentieth appearance in the humor magazine *.
Who would've thunk it?
I still vividly remember reading MAD in the early 70s, poring over the work of giants like Mort Drucker, Jack Davis, Angelo Torres, Paul Coker, George Woodbridge, Al Jaffee, Sergio Aragones, Don Martin, Bob Clarke, Dave Berg, Frank Jacobs, Arnie Kogen, Stan Hart, Larry Siegel, Dick De Bartolo, Lou Silverstone, Tom Koch -- MAD's Usual Gang of Idiots. I'd study each word, each figure and line, each article and parody, absorbing them like a sponge.
*I've actually had 29 pieces/articles/cartoons published.
