    Joe Orlando - Mad #81 Complete 3-page Story "New Movie Monsters From Everyday Life" Original Art (EC, 1963). Joe Orlando presents the terrors of everyday life in these outrageous monster movie poster-styled ads. You'll shudder at the sight of "Things in the Mailbox," "The Neighbors Are Coming, "The Revolt of the Machines," "The Invasion of the Crabgrass," and more! Although this was printed as a three-page story in Mad, the art was done on five separate pieces of illustration board, and the type blurbs were done using acetate overlays. The image area of four of the boards measures approximately 16" x 15", while a fifth, "half-page" board has an approximate image area of 14.5" x 6.5". The art is in Excellent condition.
