    Description

    Mad #55 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1960) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. You'd be cuckoo not to like this Frank Kelly Freas painted cover. Perhaps more worthy of note is the inclusion of a story by comedy legend Sid Caesar in this issue. The book also features a Madison Avenue primer, and a parody of the poem "The Raven." The interiors contain art by Wally Wood, Mort Drucker, Don Martin, and Joe Orlando. This copy sports the highest grade awarded by CGC for this issue. Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $150. CGC census 3/06: 2 in 9.8, none higher.
