MAD Monster Book of Horrifying Cliches – Humor Picture Book
Paul Coker Jr.
Out of stock
In this compilation of full-page cartoons originally presented in Mad magazine, these clichés truly have taken on a life of their own, in the form of horrifying monsters. Thus, a person who is “troubled by a nagging doubt” has a scaly, blue-colored creature dogging his heels. A man who’s “laboring under an illusion” is chained to a wheel while an immense, whip-bearing monster (an “illusion”) stands ominously over him. And somebody who’s “drowning his sorrows” or “escaping the doldrums” – again, the actions are literal, because the objects are three-dimensional monsters.
