Longtime MAD readers will remember this ill-conceived product from 1987. Warner Books packaged five copies of Howling MAD and five copies of Monster MAD — each 16 pages — with the hope that people would distribute them to trick-or-treaters instead of candy.

We expect to be moved, unpacked and ready for funny business by Monday, October 24, 2101. (This is not a typo.)

UPDATE 11/29/11: THANKS TO ALL WHO SENT IN. WE CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT REQUESTS.
Most fans of The Walking Dead are focused on Rick and Lori's troubled marriage, but what about the "walkers" themselves? Don't they deserve a shot at romance? We've got a few pointers for the decomposing man on the make.
