Since Crazy Ed is well, Crazy, then it should be no surprise that Ed has had direct contact over the years with these classic humor magazines, CRACKED & MAD!
Here are a few items about Crazy Ed & CRACKED Magazine!
Ed 1st met Dick Kulpa, publisher of CRACKED Magazine & an avid comic artist himself, in early 2001 at MEGACON. This is a bit ironic as CRACKED's publishing company is call "Mega Media Entertainment." Dick produces & publishes CRACKED in Boyton Beach, Florida.
Dick has since bought some back issue Humor magazines & even a couple of Silver Age books from Ed! Ed of course has culled his closets for more old funny books to sell to Dick at any opportunity! At Megacon 2003 he presented Dick a # 1 copy of "Crazy".
...and speaking of crazy things...
"INSANITY" RUNS RAMPANT!
In late 2002, Dick-the Publisher of "Cracked" & "Crazy Ed" both appeared at a convention where the featured guests were the Wrestling Rap group, the "Insane Clown Posse."
The turnout was dramatic, mostly with insane fans of the rappers; Dick then dedicated extensive coverage in an issue of CRACKED to the "insanity" following the group!
It took over 30 years for someone to recognize how "MAD" & "CRACKED" "CRAZY ED" really is!
The Feb 2003 Issue of Cracked featured this interior picture of "Crazy Ed" and Dick Kulpa, with a "Insane Clown Posse" makeover!
Ed says 'many thanks' to CRACKED MAGAZINE for the honor of being included in a copy of their great Magazine.
