I couldn’t find a link to the Heritage auction these reportedly came from, but this was posted with the images:
Mad Chinese Edition (EC, 1990) Condition: VF-. Published for 6 issues in 1990. Some regard the Chinese (or Taiwan) Mad as the most valuable and hard to find. An issue of the Chinese Mad recently sold on eBay for $1400+. Includes certificate signed by Mad writer Dick DeBartolo. Not currently listed in Overstreet. From the Dick DeBartolo Collection.
Most foreign editions of MAD have a certain amount of content from the US version in it. It would be very interesting to see if any of that content made it into any of the six issues of this series. Somehow MAD just doesn’t seem like something that would work very well under the control of a government like China.
Tip o’the hat to Steve Smallwood.
