Random Comic Book Splash Page #3

The Shazam Awards were given to comic book professionals for part of the 1970s to celebrate the best in comics. 1973's Shazam for Best Humor Story went to writer Steve Skeates and artist Berni Wrightson for the outstanding "The Gourmet" in PLOP! #1, which was DC's version of MAD, a comic-sized humor mag with no ads. Wrightson autographed this particular copy.

I remember reading this story in some little omnibus digest when I was a kid, standing in the grocery store waiting on my mom, and it has stuck with me more than 20 years.
