DescriptionAl Jaffee - Mad #134 Fold-In Back Cover Original Art (EC, 1970). Al Jaffee's "fold-in" feature zeroes in on the one animal whose extinction most Seventies readers would gladly celebrate -- the War Hawk! Jaffee's hilarious invention, the Fold-In, has probably resulted in more "low grade" copies of Mad than all the wear and tear from room-cleaning mothers, bratty brothers, and little sisters combined. Al Jaffee recounted in a Jim Amash interview for Alter Ego magazine, "To tell you the truth, when I made the first fold-in submission to Al Feldstein, I said, 'Al, I know you're not going to buy this, because it mutilates the magazine. But I wanted to show it to you because I'm intrigued with the idea, and I thought you might be, too.' And he was. One day, Al came over to me and said, 'I really like the idea of a fold-in cover. Can you do another one?' I said, 'Gee, I don't think so. This is ridiculous, but I'll try.' I worked to come up with something, and the rest, as they say, is history." Painted on illustration board, this superb piece has an image area of 17" x 21", and the art is in Excellent condition.
