We tried to keep the cover for MAD #523 a secret, but we just had to leak it out! The #1 issue of the summer features our spoofs of The Hobbit and Storage Wars — plus pieces on catfishing, Kim Kardashian’s delivery and much more! It’s on sale July 23rd — what are you waiting for? Go pick it up! Oh yeah...you’re waiting for July 23rd. Sorry.

On the positive side: David Remnick’s Fold-In is actually pretty good.
