DescriptionDon Martin - Original Cover Art for Don Martin Drops 13 Stories (Warner, 1974). Mad's maddest artist at his wacky best! From the first appearance of this instantly-recognizable artist in 1957, Martin was always one of the most popular of "the usual gang of idiots" whose work brought laughter to the comics-reading world month after month. Martin left Mad in 1987, after a disagreement with publisher Bill Gaines about the ownership of original art, but his work there remains a high-watermark in the world of humor cartooning. Offered here is the original color cover art for the reissue of the paperback collection, Don Martin Drops 13 Stories, a perfect example of Martin at the top of his game. Measuring approximately 11" x 17" overall, with an approximate image area of 9.5" x 15", the piece is in excellent condition. Also included in this lot is the black and white line art used for the book's back cover, measuring approximately 8.25" x 12.25". Two great pieces from one of comics' greatest artists.
