MAD at Barnes & Noble

By The Editors Thursday, November 14th, 2013

A VIEW TO A SHILL DEPT.This past Tuesday night, several members of the Usual Gang of Idiots appeared at the Barnes and Noble at 86th Street and Lexington Avenue in NYC to talk about our new book Inside MAD and sign copies. Here are some pictures from the evening’s festivities, in case you missed it (but, really, what excuse do you have? We’ve always been there for YOU!)

With the panel audience behind closed doors, MAD books
wait patiently to be bought…so patiently
