Yes, he most definitely was featured in that issue.
We know you've enjoyed seeing the custom Spy Vs. Spy toys over the last few weeks. Of course, we think they're absolutely amazing — so amazing, in fact, that we've featured all of them on a commemorative two-sided poster in our current issue, MAD #511! Go get a nice, crisp copy, 'cause this sucker is suitable for framing!

It brings to mind a classic Max Brandel image from MAD #142 (April 1971). Is it just us, or is it getting harder and harder to swallow what they expect us to breathe?
We’ve been celebrating the 50th anniversary of Spy vs. Spy pretty hard the last few weeks! In fact, some would even say we’ve been celebrating TOO hard. And to those people we say, “Poppycock!” In fact, we’re continuing the unrelenting parade of joy with ANOTHER amazing Spy design! Just take a look at today’s outstanding custom figure from Simon Doonan! Amazing!
There’s no issue large or small that Barack Obama isn’t willing to capitulate on. The most recent example; his little game of chicken with House Speaker John Boehner. First Obama scheduled what many are calling the most important speech of his presidency opposite a big GOP Presidential debate.

In a job that requires big brass balls, Obama appears to have two Tic-Tacs.
