The San Diego Comic-Con 2012 is now history. Thanks to all those who attended the MAD panel or who stopped by the DC Entertainment booth to say hello.
We'll have more on the Con as the week goes on. In the meantime, here's some photos for those who couldn't be there. (Maybe next year!)

This weekend, thousands of the best writers, artists, editors and journalists have gathered in San Diego for Comic-Con, in what’s become one of the most important and prestigious pop culture events in the nation. So what is MAD doing there?
Recently, it was revealed that Amtrak is a billion dollars in debt. A Billion! With a "B"! Do you have any idea how many tickets they'll have to punch just to get out of that hole?

The Penn State Child abuse scandal was back in the news this morning thanks to the release of the Freeh Report. The report investigated the sexual abuse charges at Penn State and — you’re not gonna believe this — confirmed what everyone’s been saying for months now: that Joe Paterno and other Penn State officials repeatedly covered up Jerry Sandusky’s sexual abuse of children.
British chef Gordon Ramsay's show, Hell's Kitchen, somehow remains a ratings hit. Just who’s watching this repetitive, profanity-laced reality show? To find out, we called the A.C. Nielsen ratings company. Until they get back to us (and it's been several weeks now), here's our best guess.
Thanks to David Norris for the snap!
There are lots of things politicians try to hide when running for office: ideological flip- flopping, past drug use, a proclivity for Miley Cyrus tunes. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Presidential candidate Willard “Mitt” Romney also recently tried to shield his precious tax returns, only allowing those from 2010 and 2011 to be seen by prying eyes. What’s there to hide, Mitt? Off-shore accounts? Dubious campaign contributions? A couple of drunken Walmart purchases? Just spill it already!
