This is a deluxe 2-volume, slip cased collection of the work of Don Martin - the best-loved artist of the iconic MAD magazine. magazine. His twisted, original approach to art was revolutionary and inspired generations of artists - in the words of Gary Larson - the Far Side creator and a huge fan - Don Martin was the one who really stood out ever published in MAD.

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.

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 MADest 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).

It also features letters and from other prominent artists and well-known Don Martin fans, including Jim Davis (Garfield), Matt Groening (The Simpsons), Stephen Hillenburg (Sponge Bob), Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, Conan O'Brien and many, many more.
