    Description

    MAD #1 (EC, 1952) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. A stunning copy of Bill Gaines' seminal satire comic, which for decades has influenced stand-up comedians, novelists, filmmakers, and other artists. Its irreverent humor challenged sensibilities in the 1950s, and has since become a cultural icon. Harvey Kurtzman provided the cover and the writing; and he, Wally Wood, Jack Davis, John Severin, and Bill Elder provided the interior art. Copies this nice are rare, and rarely found outside Gaines' own pedigreed file copies. Overstreet 2016 NM- 9.2 value = $7,300. CGC census 5/17: 4 in 9.2, 9 higher.
