"The Last of the great FAT NUTS tell all! Gaines-The Master-Builder of an Empire of Laughter! The heroic Battler of Censorship, McCarthyism and the State of Oklahoma! The Chubby!" " The side-splitting story of a man who runs his businness like a private circus, filling the water cooler with wine; wearing an artificial scar to convince people he has a mean twin brother; and on and on - ad hilarium! "Like an unrehearsed Marx Brothers movie on location.MAD fans will eat it up." (THE NEW YORK TIMES) "Sheer entertainment" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE); Frank Jacobs is an American author of satires, known primarily for his work in Mad, to which he has contributed since 1957. Jacobs has written a wide variety of lampoons and spoof, but he is best known as a versifier who contributes parodies of famous song lyrics and poems.; William Maxwell Gaines (March 1, 1922 June 3, 1992), better known as Bill Gaines, was an American publisher and co-editor of EC Comics. Following a shift in EC's direction in 1950, Gaines presided over what became an artistically influential and historically important line of mature-audience comics. He published the popular satirical magazine Mad for over 40 years. He was posthumously inducted into the comic book industry's Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame (1993) and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame (1997).; TADELLOSER ZUSTAND / BEST CONDITION.
