The DON MARTIN Dictionary of Sound Effects

Back in 2001 THWAK contributor Richard Parks had the (wonderful?) idea to convince 9 die hard MAD fans that it would be a good idea to document each and every incredible Don Martin sound effect from the pages of MAD magazine. After being edited by Ed Norris of the fanzine MADpanic, John Hett ran this 33 page reference in issue #12 of the Journal of MADness that came out in November of that same year. Strangely enough this piece did get some media attention. Whether or not any socially redeeming factors would come out of it, who knows. All I can say is that it was certainly fun to be a part of. My contribution, in addition to going through my assigned 20 or so issues was this full page accompanying illustration. For the complete Dictionary please click on my Cool Links section on the right hand side of the page.
