The Maddest Heap!
In a strange and bewildering coincidence, the MADmen Harvey Kurtzman (writer) and Will Elder (artist) concocted their own "Heap" in the pages of EC's famous satire comic.
This is a Heap in a spoof titled "Outer Sanctum" made not of moss and swamp detritus, but of garbage and the refuse and steaming chemicals of modern man, it's most powerful aspect is the awesome smell.
It happened in the pages of MAD #5, the cover seen above by Elder gives no hint of the Heap's murky presence. To read the story of the MAD Heap, go here and enjoy! All this Heap wants to do is get along.
