25 MAD covers by Norman Mingo

Norman Mingo (1896-1980) was an artist hired in 1956 to give the covers of MAD a polish enjoyed by slick magazines of the era. MAD has had several excellent cover artists, but I have a fondness for Mingo, who began a new career at MAD when he was 60 years old.

Pages 41-42 are missing from my copy. Page 41 is an ad for back issues of FAMOUS MONSTERS, and page 42 is the title page for the fiction feature, "O'Henry's Comet."
