Back on January 5th, we posed this challenge: "Can you guess what will be on the cover of MAD #514?" We showed a shockingly important piece of the art and provided this painfully obvious hint: "There is at least ONE eyebrow on this cover." Even with all of that plopped in your laps, not one Idiotical reader gave us the correct answer.
We'll give you a hint: there is at least ONE eyebrow on this cover. We know, we know — telling you that is basically handing you the answer!
Let's hear your best guess in the comments!

Just in time for the season premiere of The Walking Dead, or for anyone who enjoys a nice mouthful of human flesh, comes the cover for MAD #512. Bon appétit!
In our ongoing effort to clean out the MAD stockroom, look what we found — the original Antonio Prohias sketch for the cover of MAD #109, March 1967! It's never been seen anywhere by anyone other than the old MAD staff at the time: Al Feldstein, Nick Meglin, Jerry DeFuccio, John Putnam and Lenny "The Beard" Brenner.
The excavation continues. Check back again for more lost MAD memorabilia!
We’re still cleaning up our stockroom! Today we found pins — lots of pins that we thought you might like to see. This first photo has some of the rarest.
Here's the story on them:
The cover of MAD # 411, which went on sale shortly after the 9-11 attack, was not the cover originally planned for that issue. In fact, another cover was already printed and awaiting to be bound with the magazine’s interior pages when the attack occurred. The working title of the planned cover was “The New York City Marathon” and it was written and illustrated by longtime MAD contributor John Caldwell.
