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

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Don Martin is of MAD Magazines 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 “MADs Maddest Artist.”

Dons 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 Martins 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.

Synopsis:

Arguably the most recognized, most irreverent, and most amazing MAD artist, Don Martin contributed to the magazines success from 1956 to 1988. His popularity was so great that he was billed as “MADs Maddest Artist” and helped shape the direction of the magazine for years to come.

This must-have collection brings together the best of Martins comics from his time at the magazine, essays by other notable MAD writers—like Mort Drucker and Dick DeBartolo—discussing his life and influence, and a foreword by cartoonist Gary Larson. It is sure to bring all the laughs to any Don Martin fan.
