Pre-Mad Berg

Dave Berg (1920-2002) was featured in MAD magazine for 46 years. He's best remembered for his LIGHTER SIDE OF..  feature.

In 1951, 5 years before joining the staff of MAD, he wrote and drew two issues of a comic called ALICE for Ziff-Davis.

Here is a sample from the second & last issue, dated September 1951

Cover--Saunders maybe?

  1. I have a Berg original sketch, got it in the 70s. Really quick drawing of an eagle (?!) but the main thing is his signature, which forms the majority of the image.
