If you don’t buy this magazine, we’ll kill this gorilla! This issue celebrates the comics of the legendary ’70s satirical mag, National Lampoon! Between a new Gahan Wilson cover (accompanying an interview with the macabre cartoonist) and a new Cheech Wizard back cover (by Vaughn Bodé’s son, Mark), we take a comprehensive look at the title’s funnybook material, which featured hilarious contributions by such legends as Frank Frazetta, Neal Adams, Frank Springer, Barry Windsor-Smith, Jeff Jones, Gray Morrow, Bernie Wrightson, Michael W. Kaluta, Nick Cardy, Ernie Colón, and many more! Brilliant NatLamp art director Michael Gross gives us an insider view and we also chat with innumerable artists, writers, and editors, including Bobby London, M.K. Brown, Shary Flenniken, Bruce McCall, Rick Meyerowitz, Sean Kelly, B.K. Taylor, Tony Hendra, and lots of others. Plus special surprise features such as tributes to Michael O’Donoghue, Doug Kenney and Vaughn Bodé; an exhaustive checklist of NatLamp comic book material; and a history that will blow your mind!
