MAD at Comic-Con 2014 Wrap-up

By The Editors Monday, July 28th, 2014


The 2014 San Diego Comic-Con is now all but a memory. For those attendees unfortunate enough to visit the MAD exhibit at the DC Entertainment booth — or worse, to attend the "Mad about MAD" panel — no amount of medication, therapy or shock treatment can fully purge their minds of the ridiculous stupidity and stupid ridiculousness they endured. Here’s just a sampling of some of the sights that will emotionally scar them forever.
