I've got the video -- boy, that Stan Lee is one *annoying* guy,
imho. The MAD issue in question is #76, Jan '63. Sergio draws/writes "A
MAD Look At The US Space Effort." When I got him to autograph it he said
"Boy, I haven't seen this one for a *long* time."
For a more obscure title. . . I've got a book that Sergio did
titled "Les Piepons" that I got in Belgium. It was published by Dupuis.
The particular 'edition' is titled "1. Tout feu tout flamme", but I don't
think any more came out. There is no dialogue, and it features gags
about the daily lives of a team of firemen. On the last page, there is a
drawing of Sergio at his desk (with a Groo & Ruf. statue nearby), with
the fireteam blasting through his wall, and a space capsule (complete
with astronuts) falling through the roof. The caption says that Sergio
is drawing for Buzz & Bell and Les Piepons. . . .
