ERB Fan Remembers MAD from the Good Ole Days
When Mad Magazine did a parody of the Flying Nun show they titled it "The Flying Nut."
It inspired me to write the only letter I ever managed to get published in Mad.
A few months later, with a new issue in my hands,
I was sitting on the toilet reading it when I saw my letter.
I can't think of a more appropriate place to discover that one's letter has been published in Mad.

EDGARDEMAIN: Celebrating the literary legerdemain of Edgar Rice Burroughs
Who are the individuals who have made great contributions to the comic book arts? Who are the writers, artists, editors, publishers and others who have plied their craft in insightful ways? The Overstreet Hall of Fame, which spotlights many such creators and leading figures, is featured in The Overstreet Guide To Collecting Comics.
"Just As I Am, The Autobiography of Billy Graham."
"At home, from my earliest years, Mother encouraged me in the habit of reading. The exploits of Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest entranced me. I read the whole Tom Swift series, and the Rover Boys. Among my favorite adventure reading were the Tarzan books; they came out every few months. I could hardly wait for the next one to be issued, and my mother would always buy it for me. In the woods in back of our house, I tried to imitate Tarzan's vine-swinging antics and distinctive yell, much to the amusement of [sister] Catherine ."
The Overstreet Hall of Fame: John Buscema
Inspired by the work of Hal Foster, Alex Raymond, and Burne Hogarth, John Buscema began his career at Marvel Comics in 1948, when it was still Timely Comics. He stayed on staff there for a year and a half, afterward freelancing for a number of companies. After leaving the comics field to go into advertising in 1958, Buscema returned to comics — and Marvel in particular — in 1966, when his old boss Stan Lee brought him back to the “House of Ideas.” His Silver Age output could be seen within the pages of Avengers, Conan the Barbarian, Fantastic Four, Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Silver Surfer, among others. He also co-wrote How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way with Stan Lee. His final published comics work was DC Comics’ Just Imagine Stan Lee with John Buscema Creating Superman. His is a talent that is greatly missed, but lives on in myriad four-color tales. – Scott Braden

The Top Ten Botched Escapes from Gilligan's Island
6. The SurferIs it my imagination, or do an inordinate number of other people land on the island and somehow get off and manage to leave all seven castaways stuck there? And so we see the champion surfer, played by actor Denny Miller. Yes, he can surf off the island and get back to the mainland, but the muscular surfer has eyed the voluptuous Ginger and the innocent hottie Mary Anne. The girls respond in kind. After all, after several months of nothing but Gilligan, the skipper, and the professor, wouldn't you, ladies? But soon the ladies realize that they must act disinterested or the surfer dude will never want to leave. So Ginger and Mary Anne feign indifference to muscle boy (after initially drooling over his physique) and he decides to surf back to civilization. And he makes it -with one caveat. Surfer boy hits his head on a rock, gets amnesia, and can't remember any of the castaways or his experiences with them.

Near the end of work on another picture, Perils of the Wild (1925), Bonono fractured his left leg and injured his sacro-iliac.
Frank Merrill, who had doubled for Elmo Lincoln in Perils of the Jungle (?) was offered the job and began work the next day.
GREYSTOKE: THE LEGEND OF TARZAN (1984) Blu-Ray(tm) DiscHugh Hudson's refreshingly adult revisionist take on Edgar Rice Burroughs' immortal apeman arrives on Blu-ray like a blast of warm rain forest air. Robert Towne's script (writing as P.H. Vazak) hews close to Burroughs' origin as found in Tarzan of the Apes by way of modern anthropology. The second half may thread in some movie mythos (like Jane as English gentry) but plays out its savage vs. civilization theme. Gorgeously shot by John Alcott (The Shining, Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?), Greystoke also boasts an acting pedigree worthy of Burke's peerage, including Ralph Richardson, Ian Holm , David Suchet, James Fox, and Nigel Davenport with Andie MacDowell and Glenn Close handling Jane physicality and vocality respectively. But the film belongs to Lambert's heart-wide open performance as Tarzan and Rick Baker's amazing simian simulations.
