    Description

    Al Jaffee - Mad #231 Fold-In Back Cover Original Art (EC, 1982). This handy Fold-In by resident Madman Al Jaffee shows readers how they perform a special "magic" act with every issue they purchase -- by making their spare change disappear! This is one of the most desirable Fold-In pages, starring none other than Alfred E. Neuman himself. This very colorful creation is painted in mixed media on illustration board measuring 20" x 30". The image area is approximately 17" x 22", and the head of Alfred is a paste-up. All type elements and overlays are present, although the top portion is beginning to slip loose from the board. The art itself is in Excellent condition. From the Mad Magazine Archives.
