I Hear Ya'

Saturday Leftover Day.

Here's an oddity for you. Steven Thompson found this online in the June 1949 issue of Radio Best magazines. A series of imagined radio personalities portaits by Secret Agent X9 artist Mel Graff paired with their actual photos. It all looks pretty Mad-like to us, except that it isn't meant to be funny and Mad was not around yet, of course. But when Lee Elias later worked for Mad imitations Lunatickle and Cockeyed, he employed exacly the same style. Anyway, I looked around a bit and found another installment in the May issue. And since this is called a 'department' it may even have been in other issues as well, although none of those show up online.
