    Wally Wood - Original Art for Mad #2 "Gookum!" - Complete 6-Page Story (EC, 1952). Humor in a jugular vein from one of the earliest issues of the longest-running laugh-mag in the business. The immortal Wally Wood weighs in with a hilarious tale of a goofy Martian and the gelatinous creature he's pursuing. More freewheeling and wild than his SF or horror work, this nevertheless boasts Woody's trademark meticulous linework and mastery of the sight gag. This is "Melvin Wood" at his finest! Reasonably clean boards have multiple blue-line markings and corrections, and there is light tanning, especially on page one, but these hardly detract from the outstanding artwork. Complete stories from this early in Mad are exceptionally scarce, so don't miss this rare opportunity. Six pages, measuring approximately 15" x 22" each.
