    1. Somewhat over-sized compared to regular comic books but perfectly proportioned for the coffee table, this anthology of Sergio Aragonés' "Best Of" is a real treat. This is not a book to read through in one sitting, but rather one to enjoy - dare I say savour? - a few pages at a time. Besides, if you go too fast you might miss some of the many sight gags. For those of you who have yet to discover Sergio Aragonés, this book is probably your best way to go about it. And for those of you who know S [...]


    2. 5 stars for 5 decades. It’s amazing to me how prolific Aragones has been. To come up with ideas that are funny for so many years is the mark of true talent. And almost all of the humor is conveyed without words. There are virtually no aspects of life that are left unexamined. And, just as in the pages of Mad magazine, it has the little Aragones drawings in the margins.Equally amazing is how timeless most of these cartoons are. I was watching the funny TV series Life in Pieces and they did a ga [...]


    3. This book allows us to see the wide-reaching, strange, and detail-driven body of work Aragones has developed while working for MAD Magazine.Where would MAD bee without Aragones' drawings filled with naked butts and ironic punchlines? Aragones' work isn't always funny, or politically correct, or appropriate. But it is always captivating in detail. There's something really "working stiff" about his sometimes jittery, goofiness. This book offers a chronological view of Aragones' evolution with MAD. [...]


    4. An expansive overview of decades of work by Sergio Aragones, a gifted comedian and talented artist, who tells hilarious jokes using no words and a single picture.


    5. Sergio Aragones is literally a part of childhood, sitting under the wooden steps of Hobby Corner leafing through old comics while deciding which one to pick up, a tiny aquarium bubbling away on the counter, and me lost in a dozen fantasy worlds MAD magazine was something that kept getting better with age because I understood more and more of the jokes, but the Marginals were always classic. They were funny, they were always understandable and they always would emerge as a sudden, unexpected deli [...]


    6. If you're a fan of MAD Magazine, cartooning or simply laughing, you need to check out this book, which supplies the best of the best of Sergio Aragones' five decades of work for MAD Magazine - hand picked by the author/illustrator himself. If it wasn't for this guys work, I wouldn't have gotten into cartooning. This is a great collection of some of his funniest gags. Great stuff.


    7. It's Sergio and his silent cartoons from his debut in the 60s to the new century. That's almost five decades worth of work with "the usual gang of idiots" at MAD Magazine.Collected in an oversized hardcover edition, this book is not as heavy as the previous "MAD's Greatest Artists: Don Martin" collection. At least this one is read-in-bed-friendly.


    8. Mad's Greatest Artists Sergio Aragones: Five Decades of His Finest Works by Sergio Aragones (2010 E.C. Publications Inc.) (741.9573). This volume is an oversized volume of 270+ reprinted pages from Mad Magazine from the 1960's through the 2000's. No commentary is offered or needed by those of us who grew up reading this stuff. My rating: 6.0/10, finished 1/23/11.


    9. I don't have much to say about this collection other than it's pretty great. It seems to hit all the high points. I find the later stuff in colour a little weak, but that's more due to the tone of modern day Mad Magazine as opposed to Sergio's work. Now we need his Groo run properly collected.


    10. A very nice collection and tribute to Sergio Aragones, including the my favourite Pollution Alert and the MAD look at Star Wars which has the best gag when Luke goes to the toilet and sees all the different urinal shapes.


    11. I enjoyed MAD magazine as a kid. I didn't understand much of the satire and didn't really care. The best part of the magazine were those little pantomime cartoons along the margins! Mr. Aragones was the king of telling a story with his drawings and this book is an excellent sampler of his work.




    12. "Crecí haciendo bizcos y riendo con las pequeñas caricaturas de Sergio en la revista MAD, y sus espectaculares gags fueron una gran influencia cuando empecé a idear los Simpsons"Matt Groening




    13. This book is a lot of fun. If you aren't a fan, you might recognize his work from Spy-vs-Spy and Groo the Wanderer.


    14. A surprisingly poor selection of work from an amazing cartoonist. Some of it was great, but someh. I know there's better stuff in those five decades.


    15. Excellent. For someone exposed to MAD Magazine from a very young age, this is a masterpiece of the pantomime comic genre. Superb. Highly recommended.
