“In the Locker Room” MAD #109 (1967)
Don Martin collectors look for two characteristics in a PRIME example of his art: Character names and Sound Effects. This TWO-page spread by Don Martin, “Mad’s Maddest artist”, has both covered. The moronic football player is named FONEBONEski, perhaps the quintessential Martin character name. And when he opens his mouth, out comes “GROOT”!!! and “DAWK”!!!! Only Don Martin could come up with these gems! In addition to its stellar content, these pages are PRIME PERIOD Vintage examples dating from 1967. The art is HUGE, on two separate Large Art boards measuring roughly 17″x24″ each, for a combined area of roughly 24″x 34″.
