Item DescriptionMAD magazine frequently repackaged its material in a long series of "Super Special" format magazines, beginning in 1958. These reprint issues were sometimes augmented by exclusive features such as posters, stickers and, on a few occasions, recordings on flexi-disc, or comic book-formatted inserts reprinting material from the 1952–55 era.
Early '80s humor is expertly delivered here in the Summer of 1983 by the 'USUAL GANG OF IDIOTS' --- Jack Davis, Sergio Aragones, Mort Drucker, Don Martin, Antonio Prohias (Spy vs. Spy), Dave Berg, and Paul Coker Jr., with a sprinkling of other 'mad' cartoonists, all dismantling previous parodies of Horror and Sci-Fi movies like "The Exorcist", "The Werewolf", Close Encounters of the Third Kind", and Star Wars".
(There is something about the lesser-quality paper that MAD used that makes its pages difficult to scan without making them look like ancient parchment! The actual pages look much better than these sepia-toned scans!)
This copy is in excellent shape, with a solid and still-square binding, and no tears, or creases and a back cover that isn't "folded-in" - a nice and tight specimen of a 38 year-old magazine that was probably read under the covers with a flashlight!
We conservatively grade this at 9.0 VF/NM. As such, Overstreet lists a value of $12 . . . but we're offering it at $5.00 . . with our always-LOW shipping . . and FREE shipping for additional purchases!
Return to the joy of those distant years when reading MAD was the height of rebellion!
