After working for MAD magazine for three decades, Don Martin left in a dispute over royalties. He went to CRACKED magazine, then had his own short-lived DON MARTIN MAGAZINE in 1993. These are color pages from the first issue of that magazine.
The slipcased, two-volume set, THE COMPLETELY MAD DON MARTIN, which reprints every page Martin did for MAD, and which was originally priced at $150.00, is now being sold for the amazing price of $25.00. You can find it from various booksellers that handle remaindered books. This gets my highest recommendation. Its large-size pages show off Martin's crazy artwork to its best advantage.
Martin died of cancer in 2000, age 68.
