Chronological List of Work in Cracked Magazine

This list includes work (first appearances and reprints) that DC did in Cracked and Cracked-related publications.
For the Uggly Family stories that have the same title (The Uggly Family) but are different, I have provided a very 
brief description of the story in {}. This list may not be complete; I am likely missing a number of reprints. 
[A] means DC is the artist; [W/A] means DC is writer and artist. 
All of the information below appears in the bibliography's
Stories and Strips section.
