    Description

    Antonio Prohias - Mad #179, "Spy vs Spy" Page Original Art (EC, 1975). One great feature of Mad magazine was its inclusion of the comic strip, "Spy vs Spy," drawn by Antonio Prohias. Not only was it a wickedly witty strip, but while the '60s lefties fawned over Fidel Castro, Mad explained that refugee, Prohias, was in the magazine because he couldn't continue with his cartoon irreverence back home in Cuba. This art has an image area of 13.5" x 19", and includes an amberlith overlay, which the printer used to place tone in the art. Both items are in Excellent condition. From the Mad Magazine Archives.
