Snafu #2 1955 by Joe Maneely and John Severin

Below is the entire issue of Snafu #2 from 1955 published by Atlas (Marvel). In the wake of the mad (har har har) success of MAD Magazine when it graduated from a comic book to a magazine in 1955, many publishers jumped on the bandwagon to capitalize on their success. Atlas, always a follower and never an originator, tried to ride that comet as well. Sadly it only lasted 3 issues, but those 3 issues contained superior artwork. The entirety of this issue is mostly drawn by Joe Maneely and John Severin. For the next week or so I'll be focusing on these two gentlemen on this blog. I thought this would be a great way to ease into the coming week. Enjoy!

    This is a really good fifties Mad rip-off.
