Unusual Vietnam War-era U.S. Marine Corps recruiting poster, 27 1/2" x 22", entitled "8 Good Reasons to Get Out", and illustrated with nine color images by MAD magazine artist JACK DAVIS (1924-2016). Each illustration offers a backhanded swipe at civilian life: the image captioned "Get a better job." shows a line at an employment agency with the notice "Chicken Inspector Needed"; "More sack time" shows a cop harassing a man sleeping on a park bench, etc. The final image shows the man running back to his Marine Corps recruiter with glee. The bottom edge has been signed by a Marine Corps recruiter of the period in blue ink, beside the Corps' "E.G.A." insignia. Shows heavy folds, with some damp stains and soling, and pin holes at the corners, else very good.
