Q: Ten or more years ago I read a comic strip called Mr. Vengeance in National Lampoon. I don’t know if this was a recurring feature, or a one-time piece. This particular item involved Mr. Vengence getting “really mad”, showing up somewhere with an “intestine necktie”, and that including making people he didn’t like watch the “Care Bear Movie.”
A: “Mr. Vengeance” was written and illustrated by Buddy Hickerson and ran for many years during the ’80s. It usually appeared in the Funny Pages section of the magazine. The one you’re looking for is a special full-color feature from the Nov. ’85 issue (The Mad As Hell Issue). Hickerson also contributed other strips and did some feature illustrations.
