    Wally Wood MAD Magazine #24 "Is A Trip To The Moon Possible?" Splash Page 1 Original Art (EC, 1955). From the Science Dept.: When you get Wally Wood to illustrate a script written by Harvey Kurtzman, you know you are going to end up with a fantastic piece of work! This huge splash page appeared as page six in the issue, but was the first page of this feature giving a MAD view of a trip to the Moon. This is from the historic first magazine sized issue of this title, a format change that allowed it to side-step the Comics Code Authority completely. The hyper-detailed page is produced in ink on Craftint board with a massive image area of 16.5" x 22", depicting 100 individually drawn characters. It is signed by Wood in the bottom image area. All text is paste-up, and one piece is completely missing, with another one half-missing. The page is tanned with handling, but otherwise in Very Good condition.
