Interesting. I hadn't noticed that, but it's intriguing, as this comes from the same 1949 EC Crime comic book as the last 'Art of the Panel' entry. Obviously the Alfred E. Neumann model was bouncing around somebody's head over there before (long before) he became the symbol for 'Mad'

There's a long and glorious history of that face preceding the Mad Magazine's naming of it.
