This past weekend, the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival held a "Jack Davis Q&A" hosted by Drew Friedman and Gary Groth. They discussed a large selection of artwork from Jack's legendary career, including movie posters, Time and TV Guide covers, and, of course, his incredible number of MAD contributions.

Back in 1995, when Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House, we applied Sir Issac Newton’s Three Laws of Motion to Speaker "Newton" Gingrich's political career. The results were groundbreaking. With Gingrich’s recent sudden emergence as the front runner for the GOP Presidential nomination, we went back and took another look at our original presentation. We were stunned at how well our hypothesis held up and what little updating was required to once again scientifically and conclusively prove that Newt is an arrogant, two-faced buffoon.
With his campaign in shambles, we rush through this special edition of "Cause-of-Death Betting Odds" before the Cain Train goes off into the Tunnel of Doom.
Okay, pay attention because there will be a test at the end of this. According to Wikipedia, "an ambigram is a typographical design or art form that may be read as one or more words not only in its form as presented, but also from another viewpoint," like upside down. (Don’t feel bad; up until yesterday, we didn’t know what it was either...) Anyway, MAD fan Michael Irving recently sent us an ambigram that he created for the MAD logo!
