Just about everyone who came of age during the 1960s, 70s, and 80s was influenced by MAD MAGAZINE, and no one at MAD was more influential than “MAD’s MADdest Artist,” Don Martin. His immediately recognizable style-featuring bulbous noses, wild sound effects, and the legendary “hinged feet”-was filled with broad and daring slapstick and routinely broke new ground. A surprisingly quiet man, Martin’s work spoke volumes as he left an indelible mark on several generations, influencing the style of many illustrators while shaping the sense of humor of countless misguided youths. He was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2004. Says Gary Larson, creator of The Far Side: “Don Martin was the one who really stood out.” Now, it is with great pride that Running Press, in collaboration with MAD, launches the MAD’s Greatest Artists series with The Completely MAD Don Martin.
