MAD Paperback Books "WANTED"
$ I Want to Buy YOUR Books! Below is a List of Books That I Want! $
Note: Beginning in 1954, William M. Gaines began presenting reprints of material for Mad in black-and-white paperbacks, the first being The Mad Reader. Gaines made a special effort to keep the entire line of paperbacks in print at all times, and the books were frequently reprinted in new editions with different covers variations. 93 MAD paperbacks were published from 1954 to 1993. In addition the contributors to MAD published specialty author specific paperbacks that exceeds in number to the MAD paperbacks, most with different cover variations making collecting ALL of the cover variations to ALL of the books a daunting task. What's even MORE daunting, is trying to collect every single printing! Which is the task I'm on now!
