For over five decades, MAD Magazine has kept devoted audiences in stitches with its consistently excellent and surprisingly relevant satire. From the witty, shameless writing to the amusing, colorful comic illustrations, MAD is a timeless American classic. For the first time ever, here is a "greatest hits" collection of one of MAD's most popular and prolific artists--Sergio Aragones--hand-picked by the artist and featuring his greatest work from his debut with MAD in 1963 to the present. Assembled chronologically, it's packed with memorable cartoons, insightful interviews, new cover artwork commissioned for this book, and a special pull-out poster of Sergio's "Marginals," the wildly popular mini-cartoons that have appeared in MAD's margins for over 40 years.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Rene A. Guzman "San Antonio Express-News" blog 10/14/10
""MAD's Greatest Artists: Sergio Aragones."" there's something extra special about Aragones' hilarious doodles. Maybe it's how these mostly pantomime cartoons speak volumes without saying a word All this hardbound treasure for $29.95? "Cheap!" indeed. But also as priceless as Aragones is peerless.
If you re a MAD magazine fan you have to have this book. If you ve never read MAD you need this book even more as you don t know what you ve been missing out on all these years.

If you re a fan of MAD Magazine (and who isn t?) then you will want to add "Sergio Aragones: Five Decades of his Finest Works" to your list of books you must have ... In black and white, and in color, this book provides laughter on every page.

"Arizona Republic, " 11/19/10
a gorgeous hardcover book

"Journal Sentinel," 12/3/10
It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad world because of Aragones' snarky 'tooning as a member of Mad Magazine's famous "usual gang of idiots." Both artist and writer, Aragones has lampooned every ingredient of pop culture from "Star Wars" to cell phones. Experience the giggles all over again in this book.

"Library Journal" Reviews, 1/1/11
" wonderful oversized collection A delight and an excellent tribute to a master cartoonist."

Popmatters 12/16/10
beautifully designed with page after page of the artists works. One of the treats of the collection is new drawings by Aragones that illustrate each phase of his career, often including hilariously unflattering portrayals of himself in the best MAD style. "
