Cracked #225 [1987]

Steve Ditko and Mort Todd (the same Mort Todd seen on the latest DITKOMANIA cover) bring us another 1-page look at the senseless, yet highly amusing, "Robot War" which is tearing our great nation apart. In this one, we find that in the hands of a crafty robot, anything can be a weapon of mass destruction.

The scan really doesn't do this page justice, the way Ditko uses variations in the tonework to create depth, the wacky facial expressions and some of the goofy details in the header and the final panel.
