Robert Service a la John Severin

November 7, 2011 by The Belated Nerd

While other EC Comics alumni like Harvey Kurtzman, Will Elder, Al Jaffee, and Al Feldstein went to work with the premier humor magazine of the early ’60s, MAD, John Severin was a contributor to the second-tier CRACKED. Every now and then, Severin would elevate the brow of the humor magazine with features such as these illustrations to a famous poem by “the Bard of the Yukon”, ¬†Robert Service.

From CRACKED #19 (1961)

    Great find!

    Severin’s work in CRACKED was such an influence, far outshining the usual gang of idiots at MAD imho.
