You are here
Last week, we told you the Spy vs. Spy Custom Toy Exhibit was coming to the New York Comic Con — and that there would be some surprise additions to the show! Well, here’s one of them! In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Spy vs. Spy, DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee contributed this awesome design, based on the “Composite Superman” character — complete with a murderous twist!
All of your favorite stars are playing…without even realizing it.
Let the games begin!

Last night while Googling ourselves (we had to do SOMETHING to keep from falling asleep during the GOP debate), we found this tweet from Cindy Ritzman:
It was accompanied by a photo of her son, Brody Hunt, playing a game of Sleeveface with the back cover ad from MAD #511. What was the ad for, you ask? Well, a little blog you might have heard of: The Idiotical.
We can barely tell where Brock ends and Alfred begins!
Come meet “The Usual Gang of Idiots!” MAD Editor John Ficarra will lead a MAD panel discussion (and potential melee) featuring the legendary Fold-In artist Al Jaffee, Spy vs. Spy writer/artist Peter Kuper, writer Desmond Devlin, art director Sam Viviano and the writer/producer of the MAD show on Cartoon Network, Kevin Shinick! It's on Sunday, October 16 at 12:15 at the Javits Center in New York City.
For directions, tickets and other info, click here.
One unlucky attendee to the panel will go home with a copy of the brand spanking new MAD Fold-In Collection, compliments of Chronicle Books! (No backsies!)
Come see for yourself why other comic conventions who have hosted MAD panels have all said the same thing: “Never again!”
The MAD Fold-In Collection is on sale now! This amazing, four-volume set includes over 400 of Al Jaffee’s Fold-ins. As if that weren’t enough, Al even created an exclusive Fold-In just for the book! And as if THAT weren’t enough, you can see that exclusive Fold-In right here! Outstanding! Now that we’re all on the same page about this book’s greatness, go out and get your copy today!
But wait — Chronicle Books is also selling an exclusive limited edition set which contains a special bookplate signed by Al Jaffee! You can ONLY get it from Chronicle. Buy it here, before they're gone!
Just in time for the season premiere of The Walking Dead, or for anyone who enjoys a nice mouthful of human flesh, comes the cover for MAD #512. Bon appétit!
