    Mad #1-23 Bound Volume (EC, 1952-55). We've offered plenty of bound volumes over the years, but this is a first: the first 23 issues of Mad -- the entirety of the comic book-format issues -- trimmed and bound into in a single hardcover volume! Includes the classic "Superduperman" parody, the hard-to-find issue #5, Alfred E. Neuman's first cover appearance, and more. Art by the usual gang of idiots -- Wally Wood, Jack Davis, Bill Elder, Basil Wolverton, Harvey Kurtzman, and others. The comics are in very nice condition with gorgeous glossy covers, supple cream to off-white pages, mild wear, some tanning to the inside covers, and a mis-cut page in issue #7. Overstreet 2009 VG 4.0 value for group = $3,430.
