Plop!

 PLOP   (DC, 1973-1976)

™ and ©1975 DC Comics, Inc.

Offbeat humor and spoofs were a major genre of the seventies, with comic companies trying to match the success of EC’s Mad magazine. Marvel dominated the pack numerically, saturating the field with a score of titles such as Arrgh! and Spoof. DC published few by comparison, but what they did publish was more often funny.

Plop! was a good example of this. Its humor was decidedly droll, but by drawing on the talents of Mad’s own Sergio Aragonés, it managed to remain consistently humorous. Aragonés stayed with this magazine for almost the entire 24-issue run, later going on to become an eighties phenomenon with his Conan the Barbarian satire, “Groo the Wanderer.”
