1985 Mad Super Special #53 Cover Art

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $920.00

Aaayyy!!!...or maybe not? Alfred E. Neuman, dressed as The Fonz, gives the thumbs-down on this colorful cover artwork from Mad Super Special #53 (The Worst of Mad), Winter 1985. Produced by longtime Mad cover artist Bob Clarke, this gouache on board original measures 15 x 19.5 inches and features a vibrant multicolor background. The comic figure of Neuman dressed as the "ultra-cool" Fonz from the TV show Happy Days stands out beautifully in his black leather jacket. The work is unsigned, but is credited in the published magazine to Bob Clarke, who was signed by Mad in 1956 and has contributed numerous covers for both magazines and books from Mad. A striking Mad cover from a classic Mad artist. Near Mint condition. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $920.00
