    Al Jaffee MAD #466 Inside Back Cover Fold-In Illustration Painting Original Art (EC, 2006). Al Jaffee takes aim on high school tradition in this piece created for his signature back cover Fold-In feature. Playing on the popularity of the X-Men movie franchise, this image asks "This coming May, what group of mutants will you be seeing in every multiplex?", with the hidden image revealing "Losers on Prom Night". Rendered in Gouache on illustration board with an image size of 15" x 14.5". The board has vellum and paper overlays, with the preliminary sketch for the piece in an envelope taped to the vellum. Color streaks from brush cleaning in the side borders, with light smudging and corner wear. Signed by Jaffee in the lower right image area and in Excellent condition. From the Al Jaffee Junk Shop Collection.
