    I was always more a CRACKED man than MAD, largely because of Severin. His ability for detail and expression were second to none. I fell off the CRACKED bandwagon when he was usurped by Walter James Brogan, who was inconsistent & cocksure; he later created the Pirate’s Booty mascot. It’s also worth mentioning that Dan Clowes got his start at CRACKED, and Don Martin defected from MAD in his final years and went to CRACKED, too.

    John Severin was the man. In more recent years, he did a chapter of Rick Veitch’s Greyshirt: Indigo Sunset (a character that Veitch co-created with Alan Moore), and also drew an issue of Garth Ennis’ Punisher MAX run set in vigilante Frank Castle’s childhood.
