I wrote one MAD Trade Paperback Book in my long career at MAD. It's called HERE'S MAD IN YOUR EYE and I got to choose from my favorite articles from all the past issues of MAD up until the time the book was published in 1984. (BTW, a Trade Paperback Book is a large format paperback book, roughly 8.5 X 11".
Among my favorite things that I picked for HERE'S MAD IN YOUR EYE are:
Movie satires: JAW’D Too! / STAR BLEECH
THE TOWERING STERNO
THE POOPSIDEDOWN AVENTURE
TV Satires: STAR BLEECH (The TV Show) / LUST BOAT
GENTEEL BEN (One of few TV satires Don Martin ever illustrated!)
Magazine Satires: Modern Muscle Magazine / Photo-Monotony Magazine
Condemner Reports / Outdoors Magazine
Lots of Ads:
The Cost-A-Mint Society presents: FLAGS OF UNKNOWN NATIONS
And CIGARETTE TAX STAMPS OF THE FIFTY STATES!!!
PLUS: The Kentucky Fried Chicken Pledge Employees Can Really Live Up To!
And there are lots of other fun articles in this I60 page epic!!
Including The MAD Reader's Survey.
A take-off on Sesame Street called Reality Street so kids don't grow thinking life is all fun!
And feature by feature advertising where you'll read about a ballpoint pen so powerful it can write a check for $1 million or more. It even writes in foreign languages!
Printed In blazing full Black & White!
And some yellow from sitting in Dick’s Gadget Warehouse for more than 25 years!
These are brand new uncirculated copies. They’re also unsold copies, especially if you don’t buy one. Or more!
Read the "stunning" reviews on the back cover! Yes, this book even has a back cover, included at NO EXTRA charge!
NO WEEKS ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER LIST!
On Ebay Here's MAD in Your Eye, in good condition is being offered for $25.00. And it’s not autographed by me! I’m offering brand new (but 'warehouse' yellowed) copies for $19.99, plus $3.99 for First Class postage, autographed to whomever you choose. (Or autographed with just my name.) First Class Mail is for US sales only. It can go to Canada as media mail for the same price, but it will take about two weeks for delivery.
Here's your chance to be really sorry you bought something on eBay!
