DescriptionNorman Mingo - Mad #94 Cover Preliminary Sketch Original Art (EC, 1968). The origin of this cover gag was revealed in Mad Cover To Cover. "A favorite of Mad publisher Bill Gaines was "King Kong" (the 1933 version). When editor Nick Meglin pencilled a rough sketch of the Alfred/Kong switch, Gaines went ape over it. Thus what began as a private joke wound up as a cover." This beautifully rendered pencil and crayon preliminary study has an image area of 8" x 10.25", and the art is in Excellent condition.
