R.I.P. James Gandolfini, Actor

CLASSIC MAD DEPT.

We were saddened by the death of James Gandolfini, whose performance as Tony Soprano inspired many MAD articles over the years. Today we present a Celebrity Snap of the actor (posing with MAD artist Ray Alma), as well as our parody of The Sopranos by Arnie Kogen and Mort Drucker. It first appeared in MAD #389, January 2000. 

Classic MAD: Remembering General Patton on the Anniversary of D-Day

CLASSIC MAD DEPT.

Today marks the 69th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy. It was a major turning point in World War II and we are all indebted to the brave actions and sacrifices of those soldiers. We’d love to pay them a wonderful and fitting tribute...but as a poor substitute, we’re offering the cover and opening pages of our classic spoof of Patton from 1971.

A MAD Tribute to the Original Batmobile

CLASSIC MAD DEPT.

The original 1966 Batmobile used in the Adam West television series sold at auction recently for a whopping $4.6 million — very good news for the current owner of Burgess Meredith’s penguin-shaped submarine. We pay tribute to the sale with the cover and first page of our Batman spoof from MAD #105.

"MAD’s Greatest Artists: Mort Drucker" Coming VERY Soon!

VIEW TO A SHILL DEPT.

We are proud to announce the third installment of our popular book series, MAD’s Greatest Artists — this one celebrating the legendary Mort Drucker, universally acclaimed as one of the greatest humorous illustrators and caricaturists of all time. It always struck us as odd that a man of Mort’s immense talent would work for us, but we’re glad he does! This book is a rich compilation of Mort’s MAD work from the past five decades, including movie parodies, TV spoofs, and satirical jabs at eight presidents!
