    Description

    Mad #1 Gaines File pedigree 4/12 (EC, 1952) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. Few titles have managed to last as long as Harvey Kurtzman's brain-child, which is still going strong today. Kurtzman drew the cover to this seminal issue, Jack Davis satirized the horror genre, Wally Wood lampooned the sci-fi, John Severin skewed the westerns, and Bill Elder poked fun at the crime stories that EC published. What more could you want? Why, perhaps the most stunning specimen of this important comic! This is tied with one other copy for top-ranked honors in CGC's census for the groundbreaking issue. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $7,000.
