rick’s mention of “Son o’God” in his quiz has me reminiscing about all the great comic book parodies that National Lampoon ran throughout the Seventies, strips like “Whitedoves,” “Batfart,” “G. Gordon Liddy, Agent of C.R.E.E.P.,” their savage (and accurate) Mad parody and my personal favorite, “Sgt. Nick Penis and His Brassball Batallion” (The Brassballs don’t use parachutes! They’re tough!). These featured inspired art by talents like Neal Adams, Joe Orlando, Frank Springer and many other moonlighting mainstreamers.
Are any of the collections still in print? If not, whose cage must we rattle to bring this material to light?
I summon the *real* Deadman!
