Real Name: Unrevealed;
presumably Mack Exacto is his stage name, but it's possibly his real name;
based on his OUTRAGEOUS French accent, he was presumably French, or French-speaking Swiss, or French-Canadian, or Belgian, or Luxembourger, or from any of the 36 other nations in which French is officially spoken (also including Benin, Brukina, Burundi, Cameroon, Canaan, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Cote d'loivre, Djibouti, Gabon, Guinea, Haiti, Imaya, Madagascar, Madripoor, Mali, Monaco, Niger, Rwanda, Santo Marco, Senegal, Seychelles, Sin Cong, Togo, Vanuatu, Vietnam; and probably Bartovia);
or maybe he was faking.
Identity/Class: Human civilian
Group Membership: Inflatable partner (popped; possibly patched);
former presumably human partner (presumably injured, if not deceased)
Affiliations: Howard the Duck, Beverly Switzler, and Lee Switzler;
presumably some association with the other acts at the burlesque show (and others) that ended up in the Odd Dimension, including the Amazing Fred, the Apple Sisters and their All-Girl Apple Corps, Captain Wongo and his Norwegian Camels, Doctor Odd, Gregor, the burlesque show building's janitor; the employees of Joe's Dinner (sic), including the alleged former Vice-President of the United States of America
Enemies: His partners may consider him an enemy
Known Relatives: None
Aliases: Knife-Thrower extraordinaire
Base of Operations: Unrevealed;
formerly a burlesque house in the unidentified "Odd dimension"
Powers/Abilities: Mack Exacto was a knife-thrower, but he was either terrible, or perhaps he needed an update to prescription eyeglasses...or maybe he was good in practice but crumbled under pressure.
He carried at least four extremely sharp throwing
knives with him, as well as the board on which his assistant
was placed, as well as his partner...which was a blow-up doll.
Height: Unrevealed (perhaps 5'11")
Weight: Unrevealed (perhaps 170 lbs.)
Hair: Unrevealed (looked gray or white in the black and white magazine)
Comments: Created by Roger Stern, Pat Broderick, and Armando Gil.
Crazy Magazine#65 was misnumbered #66 on the cover. It is numbered correctly in the indicia. It's the one with the Alka-Seltzer-like cover.
The realm to which Odd transported Howard has not been identified. I believe I've informally referred to it as the "Odd" dimension.
Howard ordered Exacto out after his failure, and
he may have departed the building, but as several building were
transported, it's quite likely Exacto was still within the region
Profile by Snood.
Mack Exacto should be distinguished from:

Crazy Magazine#65, Howard the Duck story, pg. 1, panel 1 (mostly full body);
panel 2 (with inflatable assistant on wheel);
panel 4 (face and deflated assistant)
