MAD's Greatest Artists: Don Martin: Three Decades of His Greatest Works

Don Martin is of MAD Magazine's most recognized, most irreverent, and most influential artists. During his 32 years at MAD, he influenced a generation of writers and illustrators, and became known as “MAD's Maddest Artist.”
Don's ability to translate animated slapstick comedy to the printed page brought readers from around the world into his world, a world where hinged feet, enormous noses and low IQs ruled.
Inside are over 200 of Martin's funniest and zaniest works from his lengthy career, along with every “GOOSH,” “ SPROING” and “POIT” that made his cartoons great.
Also included in this one-of-a-kind collection is a generation of his color work, as well as his best portraits, posters and stickers created as bonuses for MAD Specials, and a foreword by longtime MAD editor Nick Meglin.
