This variant version of the MAD Artist's Edition HC is not numbered, but is limited to 250 copies. Before MAD Magazine was read in nearly every household, there was MAD Comics. Written and edited by the brilliant Harvey Kurtzman, and drawn by the best and most creative cartoonists of the time, including Wally Wood, Bill Elder, Jack Davis, and Basil Wolverton, MAD was the most innovative satirical publication ever unleashed upon the youth of America.
This very special Artist’s Edition features more than 20 incredible stories and 15 classic covers—including the cover of MAD #1—and every issue of MAD from #1 to #18 is represented by either a cover or story (and often both!)
and is scanned from the actual original art and printed same-size as drawn—A massive 15 x 22 inches! If you are a fan of MAD, or just great cartooning, this is the Artist’s Edition for you—192 gigantic pages of MAD goodness! Brought to you by the same team responsible for the Eisner Award-winning Dave Stevens' The Rocketeer: The Artist's Edition, as well as Wally Wood’s EC Stories: Artist’s Edition. WHAT IS AN ARTIST’S EDITION? AN ARTIST'S EDITION PRESENTS COMPLETE STORIES WITH EACH PAGE SCANNED FROM THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL ART. While appearing to be in black and white, each page was scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for instance, corrections, blue pencils, paste-overs, all the little nuances that make original art unique. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.
