The Civil War Between the Negroes and the Jews

'The Civil War Between the Negroes and the Jews !'
by John Hughes (story) and George Evans (art)
from National Lampoon, January 1980
Ahhh, yes......if you are a contemporary reader, then this comic from National Lampoon is either gravely offensive, or very funny, depending on your point of view. But back at the beginning of 1980, it was simply 'humorous'.......

Before he became famous for directing films such as National Lampoon's Vacation, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Home Alone, Hughes (1950 - 2009) was a prolific contributor to the magazine. 

Artist George Evans (1920 - 2001) worked for EC comics, Classics Illustrated, and both Marvel and DC as well as the Lampoon.
