Review: Mad’s Al Jaffee Freaks Out

Mad's Al Jaffee Freaks Out
Mad’s Al Jaffee Freaks Out by Al Jaffee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

While about twenty years too late to cash in on the “freak out” subculture, Al Jaffee does provide some very funny moments in this paperback. Al’s got a unique artistic style and sensibility that allows him to pretty much do anything remotely funny and it will come out looking both a) great and b) funnier than most other artists could’ve made it.

Like Don Martin, Al learned to shine in this abbreviated comic format, using each page as a single panel of a story or gag. If you’re a fan of Mad, at least as it was when Max Gaines published it, this is a great book to add to your collection.
