Basil Wolverton funnies from EC Comics’ MAD #11

I present to you illustrations by the great Basil Wolverton that appeared in EC Comics’ Mad issue number 11. Wolverton had two relatively big hits in comics; his space hero Spacehawk who was a Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon-esque character and his super strong Powerhouse Pepper. Please enjoy, buckaroos!!

A short quote from where I snatched these images:

Basil become well known when he won a contest to submit the ugliest woman for an upcoming LL’L ANBER comic strip in 1946. Then with his Lena Hyena he proved he could draw grotesque beings. See Hyena’s portrait immediately below.
