Which cover is better?
Both 9th printings March 1958.

Cathy Ann I own both of those along, with a full run that goes to 1987
Glen Shoemark And these ones!
Cathy Ann Years ago I went to a church sale and bought a big box full of mad comics and digests for $2.00 4 or 5 of them still have the brown mailing covers on them
Ron Labbe I was never a fan of the paperbacks, unless it was new material, not repackaged. Though many of the covers were great...
Michael Collingbine i would have to say the red cover was the best as the yellow cover reminds me of MAD STRIKES BACK!!
Robert Murphy The Red, and I have it.
Demetrius Dillard The cover on the left!
Robin Saulnier Red
Paul Rose The lime green copy with the red burst through.....first time l have ever seen this one.

from an estate sale in upstate new york. anyone know anything about this early iteration of our favorite numbskull?

Tommy Stanziola .....Ian, can you make out the name in the lower right corner?... a beauty, is this a postcard?....
Pete Hibbard Looks a little like Potrzebie to me.
Ian Scott McGregor it's a very old 8x10 photo! in the corner it says, in blocky handwriting: "GENUINE STEEL ENGRAVING"
Isaac Bidwell Jeff Norton
Johnny Mingo that's fantstic
Tommy Stanziola .....that's gotta be framed, to hang proudly on the wall, Ian!
Tommy Stanziola ....if you look at this group's header, above, this looks EXACTLY what Norman Mingo must have used as "Reference", with the exception of the different tie.....

Very sorry to hear about the death of Bernie Wrightson. Drew Friedman posted this drawing by Bernie, want to share here.

Jeff Marcellus I may be nuts, but the one on the middle looks a bit like Kellyanne Conway.
Paolo Fiore Great loss of one of the greatest artist of Ninth Art.
Michael Doty I never knew that Bernie Wrightson did the GhouLunatics. Awesome and very sad at the same time.
Ivy Dennett Thorpe David Pomerantz posted this drawing by Bernie this morning.
Paul Rose Fantastic talent.....one of the late 1960's saviour's of comics.

Im drawing a blank, who did the art for the "Up the Academy" poster?

Les Carpenter i want to guess Jack Rickard
Mark Saskin It looks like Jack Rickard.
Anthony Barkdoll rickard
Demetrius Dillard The late, great Jack Rickard was the illustrator of the one-sheet poster for "Up The Academy," Les Carpenter...in fact, the one-sheet poster was much better the actual film itself! It's easy to see why Ron Leibman had his name removed from the opening and credits of the film, as well as all other promotional material (advertising, press kits, etc.); Mad's then-publisher, the late Bill Gaines, actually had all references to Mad removed from the home video release and apologized (and even refunded money) to Mad readers who had complained how horrible the film was.
Les Carpenter Oh yeah... i loved the Parody they did....Mad magazine Resents "Throw Up the Academy"
Demetrius Dillard An advertisement for "Up The Academy" appeared on the inside front cover of Mad #217 (September 1980), Les Carpenter.
Les Carpenter I love the poster, I just won it on Ebay, the movie not so much. I wonder if Mad still has the costume Alfred E. Neuman.
Anthony Barkdoll And I saw the parody artwork for sale a few years ago and decided not to buy it.
Anthony Barkdoll Did I anyone here grab it?
Paul Rose It's by Jack Rickard.
Demetrius Dillard Grant Geissman's wonderful book, "Collectibly Mad," spotlights several collectibles and tie-in items pertaining to "Up The Academy."

Tom Richmond MAD has always had "It"!
Demetrius Dillard Wow!
Raymond Gallant Cool!!!
Tom Richmond Circa 1990, since that is issue #297, Sept 1990 and "It" filmed in the summer/fall of 1990
Raymond Gallant Really great movie

1968. A young Sam starts on his way.

Demetrius Dillard Sweet! It was mentioned in Mark Evanier's book "Mad Art"...I especially enjoyed the anecdote where Neal Adams critiqued Sam's art skills! Good job, Sam!
Ian Scott McGregor Amazing!! So cool to see!

This was just posted on the group Old Guys Who Love Old Comics by Clyde Hall: "The Graffiti Game with Superman: Bit of fun with a who's who of DC Comics artists coming up with less-than-serious new looks for Superman & Clark Kent, 1974. I recall seeing this bonus feature in the 100-page “Superman” #272, but had not thought about it until recently. Talent represented includes Curt Swan, Joe Kubert, Neal Adams, Joe Orlando, Frank Robbins, Dick Giordano, Dave Cockrum, Dick Dillin, Carmine Infantino, Kurt Schaffenberger, Sergio Aragones, Michael Kaluta, Howard Chaykin, Bernie Wrightson and Irv Novick."

Demetrius Dillard Awesome!
Travolta McMilkies so soooper, man.

RIP my ex-teacher (1962-66), novelist Colin Dexter who went on to create Inspector Morse. I feel privileged to have suggested the denouement of one of his short stories (The Double Crossing), and to have appeared as a character therein. An outstanding teacher and an accomplished writer...

David Robinson Though Morse never made it into MAD, a short-lived British competitor, Ut, offered 'Inspector Morose'...
Michael Elias Did he also wrote the spin-off Lewis, with Kevin Whately?
Annie Gaines Ashton We loved Inspector Morse! Great show! How exciting he was your teacher. I'm going to have to find a copy of that short story-wow!

A week ago, I got the MAD Archives Vol. 1. Just fantastic!!
Today I received a sealed Vol. 3. Do I break that seal to read or be "one of those collectors"?
I think I already know the answer.

Anthony Barkdoll they are meant to be read!
Brian McClelland I have the paperback of this. Its an original. written by the original writers. I also have the mags from when Kennedy was assassinated and when the Beatles played Ed Sullivan, 1st american appearance.
Anthony Barkdoll Does it look like the Russ Cochran reprints of Tales from the vault where they've cleaned them up and digitally colored them ?

Hi, everyone

Am always looking for hardcover books by Sergio Aragones (preferably signed), or hardcover books by anyone associated with Mad from its earliest beginnings to now. Thanks for letting me be a part of this group

Bernd Engel Also foreign artists?

Wasn't this actually an invention by Al Jaffee???

Annie Gaines Ashton I think it was.
David Robinson I seem to recall drawings by Basil Wolverton?
Annie Gaines Ashton ? Maybe someone will check it out and we can all see.
Bernd Engel Maybe David Robinson is right and it was Wolverton...?!
David Robinson We're ALL right (note my diplomacy :D ) The Jaffee idea is here, #184, 1976...
David Robinson The earlier Wolverton idea is for not quite the same requirement :)
David Judovin I didn't see it go over any SUVs.
