BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (1978) CRACKED Art by Severin
Cracked magazine artistic mainstay, John Severin, renders the mighty Battlestar Galactica - and a squadron's worth of deftly-executed Viper fighters - on this classic parody cover. As I have said before, I always preferred Cracked to Mad when I was a Star Kid, and Severin's incredibly detailed art was the main reason. Although he no doubt had photo reference, I can't think of a more accurate and detailed drawing of the Colonial warship in comics - certainly not in Marvel's series.
If I recall correctly, Cracked's janitor mascot was Sylvester P. Smythe, right?
