Outer Sanctum (by Kurtzman and Elder)

[Enlarge Here]

Another fantastic example of mad in it's prime, the young era of Kurtzman and crew. So young in fact that this was when they were an actual comic book(and in color), before the shift to b&w magazine to avoid the comic code. Nonetheless this is a fantastic example of funny writing and wonderful details in each panel. From 1953, issue #5, a sharp parody of the radio serial The inner sanctum. Enjoy.
