The Funniest Drawing EVER

This is “Blue Boy,” by the immortal comic artist (from Mad magazine’s halcyon days) Don Martin.

Every time I look at this, it just kills me. Growing up, Don Martin’s work meant the world to me. It showed me just how funny funny could be.

As I wrote a bit about here, for Christmas of 2007 my wife got me the ultimate Don Martin collection.

Man, that girl knows how to pick gifts.

This is a crappy scan of this drawing, but … you get the idea. Genius.

    I had to sneak my reading of Mad Magazine when I was a kid. Thank you for this reminder!

  • Tammy: Lucky for me, my parents never had any idea what I was doing. By the time I was … I don't know … in sixth grade, I had one whole drawer of my massive dresser crammed with nothing but old issues of Mad. I loved it.

    Chris: Yeah, Aragones is wonderful, as you say. But he just didn't seem to put the same kind of care into his stuff as did Martin. To me, he simply isn't as funny. But I always, always relished the work he did in Mad.
