Mad #130 (Albert Feldstein) - Naked Issue - October 1969

Every 12-year-old boy (I can't speak for the girls) who reads Mad enjoys the occasional drawing of a partially-clad woman.  This issue fed that enjoyment with drawings of naked people by Jack Rickard, Jack Davis, Sergio Aragones and Bob Clarke.  The main article showing innocent nakedness was "If This 'Nudity' Trend in Movies Ever Spreads to the Comics" written by Lou Silverstone which parodies Peanuts, Andy Capp, Beetle Bailey, Dick Tracy, Popeye and Pogo.  The final drawing shows the bare bottom of Alfred E, Neuman on the cover of Mad #231 - Jan '76 ("Our Price 35c Cheap").  Note that Mad #231 was actually published with a "June '82" date and the price was "90c Cheap."

This issue also featured the debut of artist Angelo Torres drawing the movie parody: "Where Vultures Fare" written by Larry Siegel.  Although not as talented as Mort Drucker (Who is?), Torres is a competent caricature artist who became a solid member of "the usual gang of idiots." [JAM 12/14/2009]
