    Description

    Bob Clarke - Mad Magazine #46 Original Art (EC, 1959). The early Mad, was freshly spawned from EC Comics back when William Gaines had a buzzcut. But once he let his hair down and assembled his famous "Usual Gang Of Idiots," the resulting humor and satire was a smart-alecky, surefire hit. "Idiot" Bob Clarke is responsible for this hand-painted spread -- possibly from the feature, "Mad's Modern Handy Phrase Book For the American Tourist." Rendered in watercolor on a sheet of heavy illustration board, the work has a 16.5" x 7" image area. Some slight pencil markings along the extreme right edge, otherwise in Excellent condition.
