    Description

    Bob Clarke - Mad Super Special #73 Hand-Colored Cover Production Art (EC, 1973). "Spy vs Spy" takes center stage on this reprint edition cover, focusing on Antonio Prohias' classic characters. The original black line art has been shot and reproduced on a sheet of clear acetate, which is mounted to an 18" x 22.25" piece of illustration board, with background color added. This was then used to create the finished cover, with type elements added during production. While the overlay is not actually original art, the richly colored board, created with a combination of watercolor and gouache, is. The two elements together make up one handsome portrait of everyone's favorite black and white spies -- plus, three new agents; one striped, one polka-dotted, and one checkered! Hoohah! In Excellent condition. From the Mad Magazine Archives.
