    Description

    Al Jaffee - Mad #221 Fold-In Back Cover Original Art (EC, 1981). Al Jaffee's fold-in asks "What disgusting form of pollution is now considered dangerous to us all?" Snappy fold-in answer sez: "Smokers exhaling." Trivia buffs and Jaffee-holics will want to note that this was also used for the 1986 Mad Super Special #55. Painted on illustration board, this fold-in scene has an image area of 17" x 21", and the condition of the art is Excellent. Also included are two production overlays -- one with type instructions and one with an amberlith screen. From the Mad Magazine Archives.
