Description

    Jack Rickard - Mad Super Special #44 Cover Painting Original Art (EC, 1983). When Mad took "a look at sex, love, and other things your parents are against," the dour duo from Grant Wood's "American Gothic" made sure that little Alfred E. Neuman wasn't corrupted by the sights and sounds of the big, bad world. Knowing fun-loving Alfie like we do, they should have covered his gap-toothed mouth instead. It was only fitting that Mad-man Jack Rickard was called upon to create this priceless lampoon of Grant Wood's famous couple. The talented Rickard could send-up any visual image, from fine art classics, to comic strips, to movie posters, to Madison Avenue ad campaigns -- Rickard could lampoon anything. This super special cover scene has been framed to an overall size of 28" x 37.5", and the art is in Excellent condition.
