    Mad #6 "Teddy and the Pirates!" Complete Story Silverprint Proof (EC, 1953) Mad #6 opens with this wisecracking parody of Terry and the Pirates by Harvey Kurtzman and Wally Wood. This was hardly your average fare for children, with mentions of opium and a curvaceous Burma running around in a see-through skirt, but it was funny stuff for all those misguided youths that got to see it! This is an original 1953 set of Silverprint proof pages, all hand-colored by Marie Severin for use as a printer's guide. Each page has multiple notations in pencil and black marker (some done for later reprints), but otherwise, all are in Excellent condition.
