The Superhero Phone Book! 1967 MAD Magazine Super Spoof!

Dig this terrific humor piece from the madcap maniacs at MAD magazine! It posits the idiotic idea that the swingin' superheroes would need the very same services and professionals that your average sanguine citizen would rely upon, such as tailors, auto salesmen, and attorneys, and why not? How do the mighty men and women crime-busters get their outfits repaired, their sidekicks supplied, and all those amazing gadgets, anyway? After all, not everyone has his or her own "Alfred!" Click below to enlarge and laugh!

How many ingenious in-jokes do you get in this piece? References to comics
companies, past comic creators, and much more, are all liberally littered throughout this silly spoof!
