Mad was a successful comic and that brought out a bunch of imitators in the early fifties. No one had the touch of Mad creator, editor, writer and all around control freak Harvey Kurtzman. But there are some better than average stories in that pile of humor/satire comics that vied for some of the Mad money. John Benson thought enough of “Oh, for the Life — of a Wife — of a Werewolf” to include it in his superb 2012 collection of Mad imitations, The Sincerest Form of Parody.
It was produced by the Iger Studio, and appeared in Bughouse #2 (1954), an Ajax-Farrell comic. I laughed at the menu the werewolf is holding on page 3: “Roast artist....$2.75. Roast writer....30¢. Hashed politician....10¢." I am glad it has its values straight.
