    Description

    Norman Mingo Mad #101 Alfred "Infinity" Cover Original Art (EC, 1966). This Mingo masterpiece is spotlighted on page 62 of Mad Cover to Cover. One of the "usual gang of idiots," author Frank Jacobs, elaborates, "This cover within a cover 'infinity' gag harkens back to the composition book gag (issue #20), a device for sneaking Mad into class. Always a contrarian, Alfred uses Mad to sneak Shakespeare into class. We believe it was the Bard who said, 'A Neuman by any other name would still be as dumb.'" This piece has an image area of 13.5" x 19", and it has been matted to an overall size of 21.5" x 28". The art is in Excellent condition.
