    Description

    Norma Mingo Mad About the Buoy #53 Preliminary Cover Original Art (1979). Alfred's really feeling the pier pressure, hopefully he doesn't lose his head! A nautical prelim cover by funny man Norma Mingo. On the back there is a smaller mock up done in graphite only and taped to the inside of the overlay cover, as well as a typed letter to Norm letting him know that this piece would be his next paperback cover, both presumably sent to him by editor Al Feldstein. It has been signed and inscribed below the image by Mingo. Created in mixed media on Bristol board with an image area of 6" x 10". The "MAD" title, logo, and Alfred are all stat paste-ups, there are spots of adhesive residue along the edges, and small pinholes. In Very Good condition. From the MAD Collection of Annie Gaines Ashton.
