As I get older, I'm slowly getting rid of things I don't need. But before I do I'll share them with all you nice people.

The Christmas issue of Crazy from February 1980.
Parody of Moonraker. In the late 70s Hollywood decided to have every movie take place in outer space, so the James Bond franchise followed suit.
Spoof of Rocky II.
Their version of Alien.
It wouldn't be a Paul Laikin-edited issue of Crazy without a bit of racism...
Defrocked from his position as one of the usual gang of idiots, Arnoldo Franchioni returns to his position as contributor to the lesser-known humor magazines.
The powers that be finally read the magazine and decided that since it was published by them at Marvel, they should have some kind of tie-in. The occasional Howard the Duck strip that could have starred anyone and passing references to Marvel characters just wasn't cutting it so this was one way of bringing Crazy into the Marvel Universe as they're now trying to do with their movies. You'll see them slowly fitting more Marvel content in as we show more examples of the magazine chronologically.

Much of the material here is at least a generation old and therefore sometimes has racist and sexist standards we wouldn't conform to today. I try, but can't always do a line-item veto. Remember, if something has stereotypes it's posted in spite of them and not because of them. You're not wrong to be offended, think of it like a friend you like hanging out with 95% of the time but once in a while they embarrass you. My own attitude is to move forward.
Many of the images I posted between 2011-2013 were disappeared by the image bank I was using then but I still have most of the scans and am bringing them back slowly. Be patient.
Some people don't realize you can make images bigger by clicking on them or that there are earlier postings beyond this page. Well, now you know. You're welcome.
