    Al Jaffee MAD #334 Complete 1-Page Double-Truck Story "Real-Life Superheroes at Comic Book Conventions" with Sergio Aragones Cameo - Original Art with Envelope of Loose Captions Group of 2 (EC Publ., 1995). Jaffee brings his inimitable mixture of jolly humor and embittered sarcasm to this panoramic view of the comics-convention scene, depicting the working artists and their publishers as semi-tolerant captives of legions of fanboy nerds and resentful amateurs. Enough frenzied detail, here, for a Botticelli painting of Dante's Inferno, with innumerable sight-gags and a wealth of goofy, impolite wordplay. A grifter passes off plentiful funnybooks as overpriced rarities. A loudmouthed enthusiast bombards the major publishers with stupid questions. A Batman-maniac intimidates the villainous Penguin. An obsessive collector hauls his possessions in a vault-on-wheels. Fanciful, with a basis in documentary realism. Amidst the madness, real-life cartoonist Sergio Aragones radiates his customary natural serenity. Brilliant. Ink over graphite on conjoined slabs of Bristol board. Image area, 28.75" x 19". Loose captions fill the accompanying envelope. The title lettering has been replaced with a matching photocopy paste-in. Very Good condition.
