MAD (1952) #1
There are two printings of this issue. This is the second, fixed edition. Details follow...
While the first two dozen or so issues of MAD had the cover title "Tales Calculated to Drive You Mad", the indicia was always titled only "Mad". The indicia of this reprint is titled "Millennium Edition: Tales Calculated to Drive You MAD 1". This discrepancy is due to the contents being reprinted from an earlier reprint, Tales Calculated to Drive You MAD (1997) #1, rather than the actual MAD (1952) #1. In addition to the indicia title being incorrect, it cites DC Comics as the original copyright holder of the title and featured characters instead of E.C., and the credits page doesn't mention Maxwell Gaines and Harvey Kurtzman as the respective original publisher and editor. DC recalled and pulped the issue, and published a second printing. The copyright and credit errors were fixed, but the title remains incorrect using the "Tales Calculated..." title from the 1997 reprint.
