Mad’s Maddest Artist Don Martin Bounces Back by Don Martin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The gag humor of Don Martin is not nearly as dated as much of Mad Magazine’s output, as this paperback readily shows. I remember this as the very first comic book “paperback” I ever bought, seeing a copy on the racks at K-Mart (remember back when they sold stuff you could actually use?).

This book is pretty much all Fester and Karbuncle stories. “National Gorilla Day” and the opus “The Hardest Head in the World” stand out as the funniest, at least to me. This is Don Martin at his prime in both gags and art, so it’s definitely still worth a read by any fan or any comic humor aficionado.
