Remember These? 'MAD Trick-or-Treat Reading' Packs

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. (Evidently Warner Books thought it was okay to rot kids minds, but not their teeth!) We have no idea if the Halloween giveaway was successful or not, but since we didn’t do it again the following year, we suspect Warner Books lost a bundle on the deal.

Unearthed: Original Antonio Prohias Sketch for MAD #109!

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!

New “Soul of MAD” Print! (Give Us Your Money!!!)


For the last couple of years, with every 2-year subscription to MAD, we’ve offered a collectible, limited-edition print of a classic MAD cover. And when MAD #512 goes on sale on Oct. 25, it will announce the latest print in the collection — “Alfred Eating Corn on the Cob.” Um, except that we just announced it here…oops.
