    Sergio Aragones MAD #228 Complete 2-Page Story "Give Thanks" Original Art (EC Comics, 1982). Aragones' good-humored sarcasm transforms John Ficarra's roster of family-reunion horrors into a masterpiece of holiday frivolity. Be thankful to dodge the affections of those creepy relatives. Give thanks if there are no Thanksgiving-dinner leftovers. Give thanks if there are antacid pills in the medicine chest. And so forth. You get the picture. A whole lot of pictures, in fact -- a cram-packed double-page spread from one of the funniest and most perceptive cartoonists in the business. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with Rubylith-film overlays (removable without harm to the artwork). Accompanied by proof sheets containing Ficarra's full text. Image area, 11.5" x 14". Excellent condition. From the MAD Collection of Annie Gaines Ashton.
