Kaspar, The Dead Baby

From Crazy #8 (Dec. 1974), a parody of Casper The Friendly Ghost that disturbed (and amused) me greatly when I was a 7 year old. Thanks a lot, Marv Wolfman and Marie Severin!

This was THE most memorable thing from CRAZY in my opinion.

CRAZY was way funnier than MAD or CRACKED!!!

I know I read this in Crazy, but my experience in seeing it had to be later, possibly in a best-of re-issue, though still in the 70's. I think this satire of Casper may be my earliest remembered scarred-for-life moment.

Winner of Best Humor Story at the 1974 Academy of Comic Book Arts Awards. Thanks for posting so I didn't have to track down a copy of Crazy #8.

Same here. I mostly just remembered the title and Mom being mad.

Didn't know that this was Marv Wolfman's earliest Marvel pieces before creating Blade.

Bought it off the stand, I was 13. Good thing Basil Woverton and Wally Wood already warped me for life...
