"The New York Times obit for the extraordinary Al Jaffee says: 'In 2020, MAD celebrated Mr. Jaffee with a “Special All Jaffee Issue,” full of his work. It was to mark his formal retirement, and it included a fold-in that he had created in 2014 in anticipation of that eventuality'," Stan posted Thursday on his @realstanmack Instagram account.
"I hung out with Al in his Provincetown lair and admired his other brilliant illustration work while he told me the story behind his yet-to-be-revealed final fold-in. I did this comic for my series in MediaPost," Stan explained.

Stan Mack's "Real Life Funnies" comic strip collection will be published later this year by Fantagraphics.
