    Antonio Prohias - Original Cover Art for the Third Mad Dossier of Spy vs. Spy (Warner Books, 1972). Just three days before Fidel Castro took over Cuba's free press in 1960, cartoonist Antonio Prohias fled that embattled island and sailed to America. Instantly finding work at Mad, Prohias created Spy vs. Spy as an anti-Castro cartoon, but the political aspects were soon forgotten as the antics of the Black and White spies became one of the most popular features in the magazine. Although Prohias passed away in 1998, his legacy lives on, still delighting millions around the world. Offered here is the cover art for one of the many paperbacks that reprinted this landmark work. In glorious full-color, the piece measures approximately 9.25" x 12.25" overall and is in excellent condition. A fine piece for anyone who fondly remembers this classic cartoon.
