Irreverent humor is the order of the day with this pair of vintage graded magazines. Ask the folks at Mad magazine if they ruffled a few feathers in their early days and you'll get a big fat yes, along with the obligatory "what, me worry?" shrug. Began as a comic book in 1952, this king of the humor genre publication changed to magazine format in 1955 to escape the restrictions of the Comic Code Authority. Offered here is the historic last comic book format issue, 5/55 Mad #23 graded (5.5) in a CGC "Restored Grade" holder. Also included is another key issue humor magazine, 3/72 Up Your Nose #1 inaugural issue graded (2.5) in a CBCS "raw grade" holder.
