    Description

    Bill Elder MAD #24 Complete 9-Page Story "Is This Your Life?" Original Art (EC, 1955). From the Television Dept.: This is a hit parody of the hit TV show "This Is Your Life!". What we mean is that someone should be hit for this parody! The gags are awfully funny. The art is terribly good. Face it... it's so bad it's great! The bit starts off with a full-page splash featuring an amazing amount of cameo caricatures! From Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, to Prince Albert in a can! You could waste a lot of time identifying these cameos (WE did!). This splash has a twice-up image area of 16" x 21.5". Toned, and someone has stuck a presstype text sticker directly on the artwork. The next eight pages are composed of original art sections (usually three to a page) pasted up on re-creation Bristol board with low-res paste-up re-creations of the original text. There is some glue residue, and faux-stains in the margins to make this look vintage. These pages have an image area of 14.5" x 22.5". The splash page and original art sections were created in ink over graphite on CrafTint Duotone board. Due to noted paste-ups, all pages are in Very Good condition.
