    Jack Rickard MAD #242 "Peanuts" Parody Page Original Art (EC Comics, 1983). MAD stays true to its 1950s origins as a lampoon of comics-in-general. One requirement of original editor Harvey Kurtzman was that an artist mimic the style of any strip being spoofed. This page proves Rickard perfectly capable of channeling Peanuts creator Charles Schulz. The script (by Frank Jacobs) channels another popular franchise, comedian Roger Price's Mad Libs (1958), which challenged participants to fill in the blank spaces of an incomplete narrative. Jacobs called this feature "MAD's All-Inclusive Do-It Yourself Comic Strip." The ink-on-Bristol page measures 12" x 10". Very Good condition.
