    Description

    Richard Williams Mad #288 "Special Heavy Metal Issue" Cover Original Art (EC, 1989). "So you want to be a rock and roll star? Then listen now to what I say. Just get an electric guitar. Then take some time and learn how to play. And with your hair swung right, and your pants too tight -- It's gonna be all right." Our old friend Alfred E. Neuman never looked more like a "Metalhead" than he does here, posing among the legends of Metal on this gorgeous, fully painted cover by Richard Williams. This could be the ultimate Mad collectible for all of us headbangers who have welcomed the "What, Me Worry" kid into our homes and hearts for so many years -- "Rust in Peace," Alfred. This cover has an image area of 16" x 22", and it has been matted and framed to an overall size of 23.5" x 28.5". The art is in Excellent condition.
