Mad Souvenirs

Nowadays I don't spend all that much time thinking about Mad Magazine, but it was a staple of my life between the ages of 9 and 16 or so. Here is a collection of three souvenir drawings by Sergio Aragonés, Don Martin, and Don Piraro. They were recently sold on eBay for what today seems a reasonable price.

Alfred E. Neuman (1996, bottom), Sergio Aragonés
I admire how Aragones dealt with the obtrusive presence of the postmark.

Best Wishes, Don Martin 
Bizarro (1998), Dan Piraro

Note:  My last mention of Mad Magazine was in the "Big Barcodes" post here.
