    Mad #1 (EC, 1952) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. It's hard to believe that there was a world without Mad at one time, but indeed, from the dawn of time through late 1952, mankind was deprived of it. But starting with this very issue, the combination of Harvey Kurtzman's sense of humor with the artistic talents of Wally Wood, Jack Davis, and Bill Elder made comic history. Only a handful of copies have been graded higher than this one in CGC's current census. Overstreet 2005 VF/NM 9.0 value = $5,083; NM- 9.2 value = $6,700. CGC census 3/05: 5 in 9.0, 6 higher.
