Here's another imitation of MAD when it became a magazine. Marvel/Atlas/Timely had a bunch of imitations of MAD the comic, but once it switched formats, they followed suit. While there have been a bunch of imitations over the years, this is one of the few to imitate Kurtzman's brief reign. It has two-color covers, text pieces, a higher page count, and captions instead of balloons in its comics, all of which disappeared from MAD after a few issues, and became the version most known.

This is taken from the first issue in November 1955 and written by Stan Lee.
