    Description

    Peter Kuper MAD Complete 2-Page Story "Spy vs. Spy" Original Art (EC Publ., c. 2000s). Antonio Prohias, the Cuban originator, is a tough act to follow on MAD's timeless Spy vs. Spy franchise, and Kuper proves up to the task and then some. This chronic exercise in reciprocal hostilities finds Black Spy painting an insulting portrait of White Spy, who retaliates with a blast from a "flexable (sic) cannon." What goes around comes around, of course, and the targets turn out to be as "flexable" as the weapon. Political satire of a high order, transcending its own original Cold War inspiration. Ink and watercolors on fine-grain, deckle-edged textured stock. Image area, 7.5" x 9.5". In Excellent condition, with very faint handling wear.
