Monday MADness- The Wizard of O!

November 18th, 2013 | Posted in Monday MADness

I just got back from the Ohio State Festival of Cartooning, where they officially opened the fantastic new Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum… I’ll write a little synopsis of this tomorrow. I was very flattered and privileged to have a couple of pieces in the opening exhibit, as part of a smaller area dedicated to caricature. The two originals were part of a full parody (including pencil roughs) I donated to the library entitled “The Wizard of O”, written by Desmond Devlin and appearing in MAD #505, Oct 2010. Here are the never-before-seen inks and pencil roughs from that job, plus the finals of the first two pages and a couple of panels, the originals of which are hanging in the show (Clicky any to embiggen):










Now go out and buy a copy, you clod!


  1. Lee Fortuna says:

    Love your B&W work Tom! Any chance of the final inks being for sale in the future or they are the property of MAD?

  2. Let the bidding wars begin….I’d like page 5 (I think) with Glenn Beck crying in the second panel and Sarah Palin melting…oh Please!

  3. Jack Myhervold says:

    Robert Reich would be grateful you didn’t make him smaller than his fellow “little pundit people”. In real life, he is only 4’11” tall.
