The MAD offices were host to a number of MAD luminaries (we use the term loosely) on Thursday, including Paul Coker, Drew Friedman, Tom Richmond, Teresa Burns Parkhurst, Desmond Devlin, Tom Bunk and Irving Schild! And in case you don’t believe us, we’ve got the photo to prove it! (Click the image to make it bigger!)
Yesterday, Lance Armstrong finally came clean and admitted to being a lying, cheating, drug-using weasel. After years of steadfast denials, what prompted this sudden act of truthfulness? Some say it was the overwhelming evidence compiled against him.
Yesterday, DC Entertainment announced that they’ll be expanding on the classic series Watchmen
with seven inter-connected prequel mini-series. Some of the industry’s biggest names are involved, yet one name was conspicuously absent — ours! We correct this hurtful oversight by bringing you our Watchmen parody, created years before the DCE announcement was even made!
Over the years, MAD did a lot of takeoffs on “The Family Circus”. Keane always enjoyed them and laughed along with us.
Here’s just a small sampling. Thanks for the inspiration, Bil.
