"MAD's Greatest Artists: Sergio Aragonés." there's something extra special about Aragonés' hilarious doodles. Maybe it's how these mostly pantomime cartoons speak volumes without saying a word… All this hardbound treasure for $29.95? "Cheap!" indeed. But also as priceless as Aragonés is peerless.
If you’re a MAD magazine fan you have to have this book. If you’ve never read MAD you need this book even more as you don’t know what you’ve been missing out on all these years.
“If you’re a fan of MAD Magazine (and who isn’t?) then you will want to add Sergio Aragones: Five Decades of his Finest Works to your list of books you must have ... In black and white, and in color, this book provides laughter on every page.”

“a gorgeous hardcover book”
Journal Sentinel, 12/3/10
It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad world because of Aragones' snarky 'tooning as a member of Mad Magazine's famous "usual gang of idiots." Both artist and writer, Aragones has lampooned every ingredient of pop culture from "Star Wars" to cell phones. Experience the giggles all over again in this book.
Library Journal Reviews, 1/1/11
"…wonderful oversized collection… A delight and an excellent tribute to a master cartoonist."
“…beautifully designed with page after page of the artists’ works. One of the treats of the collection is new drawings by Aragonés’ that illustrate each phase of his career, often including hilariously unflattering portrayals of himself in the best MAD style.”
This is a very large, very funny book of Sergio Argones cartoons.
I received the book yesterday, and today we cuddled in bed, and looked through some of the cartoons, picking pages at random.
This is a wonderful collection with selections from five decades of MAD MAGAZINE cartoons by the great Sergio Aragones!
This book is a great buy for a wonderful book by one of MAD's and my favorite artists. You will be laughing all the way through. Excellent price, packing and servicePublished 1 month ago by Wawright61

This made a magnificent birthday gift. Excellent value for money, the only way it could be improved would be to have it autographed by the great Aragones himself. Long may he live.Published 3 months ago by Andrea Stengel
