Spy vs Spy – Mad #72 (1962)
From only the SECOND year of SPY vs SPY, this EARLY strip by Antonio Prohias, creator of Spy vs Spy, is a CLASSIC! The gag is complete and comes complete with an upper and lower gag as well as the original hand drawn Morse Code signature, which is missing from many of the strips! Only roughly 200 Prohias Spy vs Spy gags were ever created for MAD magazine! Many are incomplete, missing top or bottom gags, or Prohias’s Morse Code signature, which spells out “By Prohias” in Morse Code. Early examples like this one do not come on the market often! One of the best examples of Spy vs Spy I have ever seen!
The artwork is framed, and measures a HUGE 16.75″ x 24″ on two sheets of artist’s board, signed in final panel.
