Mad #139 (Albert Feldstein) - Protest Issue - December 1970

Reflecting the times, Mad presented a Jack Davis cover with all students protesting except for Al who was dressed for a football game.  Inside, the battle between establishment and anti-establishment sides is seen with Don Martin's "flower power", Dave Berg's "Lighter Side of the Revolutionary Movement", Al Jaffee's "Hawks and Doves", Larry Siegel's "Silent Majority" magazine parody, Lou Silverstone's modern teenagers (drawn by Paul Coker, Jr.) and the college protesters on "Ironride" by Silverstone & Angelo Torres.  The War in Vietnam was still several years from its ugly end, and Richard Nixon and Spiro Agnew were perpetually clueless regarding the concerns of the youth movement.  Mad, as always, served as the true chronicler of the current culture.
