    Mort Drucker MAD #52 Complete 2-Page Story "Sure-Fire 1959 Christmas Song" Original Art (EC Comics, 1960). These pages evoke pangs of nostalgic loss to see art from the heyday of "MAD" -- a pop-cultural benchmark, newly cancelled in 2019. Nothing was sacred to "MAD", which devoted these pages to a suite of Christmas song parody lyrics. Frank Jacobs' words are missing from these boards (having been typeset after Drucker had completed the art), but the cartoons themselves are wondrous to behold. Created in ink over graphite on Duo-Tone board with an image area, 16.5" x 23". There is marginal toning, light dust shadows and handling wear along the edge, small paper lifts and scuffs, with tape, and adhesive residue. Overall in Very Good condition. From the MAD Collection of Annie Gaines Ashton.
