ARCHIE'S MADHOUSE (often spelled MAD HOUSE) was that company's version of the Kurtzman-style lampoon comic that every other company seems to have done a few years earlier. Archie waited and then initially spoofed their own product. That ran dry pretty quickly though and sights were set on various pop culture and teenage interests--monster movies, TV westerns, rock and roll music. It worked, too! By keeping more or less current on the trends the title would ultimately last more than a decade through various changes. Orlando Busino was a major early contributor. For much of its run, writer George Gladir and artist Joe Edwards dominated the pack but there were always other, uncredited creators involved , also. Not certain who this early piece is by but it made me LOL. Watch for Craig Yoe's BEST OF ARCHIE'S MAD HOUSE coming in 2011!
