Mad about the Fifties: The Best of the Decade

by ,

Now in "MAD About the Fifties" young whippersnappers and wizened elders alike can appreciate MAD's subversive beginnings. Thrill to cult classics like "Superduperman!, " "Melvin of the Apes!, " and "Mickey Rodent!"; pointed parodies like "Gunsmoked, " "Perry Masonmint, " and "The Ed Suvillan Show"; hilarious humor from seminal comedy pioneers like Tom Lehrer and many more; comic creators like the maniacally logical Don Martin, Harvey Kurtzman, Wally Wood, Jack Davis, Will Elder, and Al Jaffee, as well as early examples of the "MAD Primer, " "Scenes We'd Like to See, " and the compellingly loony "Strangely Believe It!" series; and rare reproductions in full color of historic early covers and classic ad parodies. But wait! There's more! Special bonus! Amazing revelations about the mysterious origins of Alfred E. Neuman (was his original name really Melvin Coznowski? or was it Mel Haney?). Hide synopsis
