    Antonio Prohias The Third MAD Dossier of Spy vs. Spy Complete 14-Page Story "Operation: Portal to Portal Play" Original Art (Warner Books, 1972). MAD magazine provided Prohias with a haven from the dictatorship in his native Cuba. Prohias, in turn, provided MAD with the smash-hit Spy vs. Spy series, a Cold War satire that lasted 30 years under his authorship. The paperback originals were just as successful -- requiring numerous reprintings. This story finds the rival spies caught up in a perpetual wild-goose chase, complicated by an arsenal of high-tech equipment. Ink over graphite and blue pencil, with shading film, on bond stock. The image area measures 6.5" x 11.5". Excellent condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
