A collectors item and object dart in its own right, this deluxe, two-volume slipcased edition showcasing the art of Don Martin covers his 30-year career and contains the complete collection of every piece of art Martin created for "MAD" magazine. It also includes letters, sketches, rare photos, and more.
Just about everyone who came of age during the 1960s, 70s, and 80s was influenced by "MAD" MAGAZINE, and no one at "MAD" was more influential than ""MAD"'s "MAD"dest Artist," Don Martin. His immediately recognizable style--featuring bulbous noses, wild sound effects, and the legendary "hinged feet"--was filled with broad and daring slapstick and routinely broke new ground. A surprisingly quiet man, Martin's work spoke volumes as he left an indelible mark on several generations, influencing the style of many illustrators while shaping the sense of humor of countless misguided youths. He was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2004. Says Gary Larson, creator of "The Far Side" "Don Martin was the one who really stood out."Now, it is with great pride that Running Press, in collaboration with "MAD," launches the "MAD"'s Greatest Artists: The Completely "MAD" Don Martin ("MAD"'s Greatest Artists Series). For the first time ever, here is the complete collection of every piece of art Don Martin published in "MAD" throughout his extraordinary thirty-year tenure (1957-1987). With all of Martin's strips, covers, posters, and stickers--presented in chronological order--it is nothing less than a masterpiece of comic genius. Complementing Martin's opus of published works are letters, sketches, and rare photos providing an in-depth look at the artist at work. Plus, scattered throughout are notes and original illustrations--commissioned for this volume--paying tribute to the artist and penned by "MAD"'s most-notable personalities, including Al Jaffee, Mort Drucker, Jack Davis, Sergio Aragones, and more. There are also notes by the likes of Jim Davis ("Garfield") and a foreword by Gary Larson. A collector's item and object d'art in its own right, this deluxe two-volume slipcased edition will be the season's must-have gift book for the millions whose childhoods--and subsequent adulthoods--would not have been the same without "MAD" MAGAZINE and Don Martin.
