    Drew Friedman Mad #438 Cover Painting Michael Jackson Original Art (EC, 2004). Alfred E. Neuman does look a little worried on this cover image that pairs him up with that Bad Michael Jackson on this Thriller of a cover image! The original art was created in gouache on paper, and trimmed to the edges. That image area measures 7" x 10" and it is set in the right hand portion of the mat, where the board behind it is signed by Drew Friedman. The left side of the mat contains a copy of the actual published magazine. They are Plexiglas front framed to 32.25" x 25". The trimmed original art is starting to curl on the edges inside the frame. Overall in Excellent condition. It's as easy as ABC, if you Wanna Be Startin' Somethin, then you need to get your bid in on this piece.
