Not Martin's best work. I mean, it would've been a riot if I were 11. And it was 1969 (the book's publication date; third printing).

Sample skit: "Making Peace with the Indians":

Panel 1: Chief shaking hands with Frontier Soldier as both are seated in front of teepee. Chief says, "Ah! Me always glad to make-um peace with white man. Now we gettum chance to smoke peace-pipe!"

Panel 2: A giant question mark erupts out of the teepee.

Panel 3: Chief screams into teepee, shaking his fist in anger.

Don Martin, the late master of the sick joke, cranked out his fifth book in 1969. By then, however, he had been forced to give up on his more demented visions in favour of a younger, more impressionable audience.

MAD's Don Martin Cooks Up More Tales (sic) is a child's version of this perverse type of comedy which gave Martin his signature style. A few of the jokes are more grown up ("Wife rollem joint!" announces the stereotyped Native American, upon discovering that he had lost his "peace pipe")

Probably the best of my Don Martin paperback collection. Nice solid collection of stories, plus I like the ongoing saga strip of Leap Into Life. Also some excellent art, especially with the Elvis parody story.

Don Martin's weird '60's humor might take you back, as it did for me. Or you might find it explains a lot about some of us weird ol' geisers ....
