Default MAD magazine rocket art

Sometime in the early 70s when Mad was lampooning the planet that went ape movies Estes employed Don Martin for a cover of MRN that showed technicians counting umptillion c67 engines in the engine compartment of a moon bound Saturn V. Does anyone remember this, have a scan they might care to share?

Mojo1986's sheet looks like the color may line up better with the line art. Hard to tell in the sleeve.

I have that issue somewhere in my collection.
Positively hilarious.

I remember that cover - very funny with lots of surprises when you looked close.
I don't think that was Don Martin art, maybe somebody at Estes drew that up in his style.
Do a search and check out the differences in the hands, fingers and shorter legs.
The artist did capture the faces and half closed eyes.

Kellner signed it in the bottom right hand corner. I would assume Wayne Kellner.

Mike Dorffler's accounts of the antics and comical sketches by Wayne Keller are pretty funny. I'd not be surprised if Wayne did the artwork.
