Donald "Don" Martin (1931-2000) was a notedcartoonist who wielded a special influence over Baby-boomers, freeing them from the confines of sobriety imposed by the World War generations. Martin's best-known works, however, were published in Mad Magazine between 1956 to 1988. He had two distinct styles: patently insane and totally bombastic.

Martin left Mad in 1987, and he began cartooning for copy-Mad humor publication Cracked, which insulted its larger competitor by billing Martin as "Cracked's MADest Artist." After six years with Cracked, Martin parted company with the magazine in 1993. A year later, he launched his own short-lived publication, Don Martin Do-It-Yourself which only published two issues before Martin was abducted.
