If you're going to San Diego Comic-Con next week, there will be plenty of MAD events to partake in once you get squeezed out of the Firefly reunion panel! Here's what you can do to get the most of your MAD experience this year:
• Stop by the DC Entertainment booth to see the MADropolitan Museum of Art! We'll be displaying framed prints of classic MAD superhero illustrations from over the years, featuring art by Mark Fredrickson, Mort Drucker, Dave Gibbons, Frank Miller and more! Many of these are being shown without logos and text for the first time!
• Come to the "Mad about MAD" panel on Saturday from 2:00-3:00pm in Room 9! Find out everything we've got planned for MAD's 60th Anniversary and for the next 60 years to come, with editor John Ficarra, art director Sam Viviano, assistant art director Ryan Flanders and artists Angelo Torres, Sergio Aragonés, Tom Richmond, and Peter Kuper! Be sure to have good questions ready — prizes will be awarded!
• Aspiring MAD illustrators and cartoonists: we'll be doing portfolio reviews, so keep your eyes and ears open for more details!
