    Mad #5 (EC, 1953) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. Bill Elder takes his turn at cover art (but wouldn't get another shot for over 250 issues) and comes up with a brilliant collage of none-too-subtle vignettes. Elder did manage to contribute lots of interior work in the series, often working with Wood or Kurtzman, and showed up for decades afterwards in the Kurtzman creation of "Little Annie Fanny" in Playboy. This high-grade copy brings Elder's genius to life. Overstreet advises this issue suffered low distribution. Overstreet 2002 VF 8.0 value = $1,036. From the collection of Bobby Harmon. $$$$$
