    Description

    Mad #24 (EC, 1955) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white pages. From the twisted minds at E.C. comes the first magazine format issue of Mad which featured the first cover appearance of the phrase "What? Me Worry?". Alfred E. Neuman also shows up on the cover (his fourth cover appearance ever), complete with a Harvey Kurtzman logo and border. The zany artists on this ish include Wally Wood, Jack Davis, Bill Elder, and Bernie Krigstein. This phenomenal copy is only eclipsed by one issue as the highest CGC-graded copy to date.
