Description

    "J. Fred Muggs"
    Mad #38 Cover Original Art (EC, 1958).
    Can a chimpanzee paint? Here's perhaps the wildest Mad cover ever, "attributed" to the famous chimp that appeared on the original Today show with Dave Garroway, back in the 1950s. Lore has it that Muggs, the first Mad "guest cover artist," bit editor Al Feldstein, and never worked for the magazine again! This wacky piece, fingerpainted in oils, has an image area of approximately 15.5" x 15.5" and, other than a slight bit of color fading, is in Excellent condition. It's been matted and framed to an approximate size of 20" x 20".
