    MAD MAGAZINE #20

    This issue, it’s Gagzilla vs. King Kong Ball! Filled with more gags than you can shake a Fay Wray at, MAD #20 is a monstrous smack down salute to Godzilla and King Kong! We searched the deep jungles of the archives for issues that time forgot and captured some wily witticisms from the Usual Gang of Idiots. Witness the beastly works of Mort Drucker, Dick DeBartolo, Sergio Aragonés, Angelo Torres, "Duck" Edwing, and many more.

    Parodies include "King Korn," "Gotsilly," and "Son of Mighty Joe Kong." And a new Fold-In that eats itself by writer/artist Johnny Sampson.

    MAD MAGAZINE #18

    MAD #18 WILL SELF-DESTRUCT AFTER READING

    The secret’s out—and so are the agents! MAD #18 is our all-espionage issue, featuring Peter Kuper’s final installment of Spy vs. Spy! Celebrating the 60-year-saga of Antonio Prohías’ sneaky secret agents, we revisit the work of the artists and writers who contributed to this iconic cartoon, including Duck Edwing, Bob Clarke, and Dave Manak. Plus, we’re “Wishin’ for the Impossible,” watching “James Bomb,” play one awful game of “Charades”, and, as usual, try to "Forget Smart."

    MAD #19 - MAD PREDICTS THE FUTURE

    Gaze into the wonders of tomorrow, courtesy of yesterday's MAD! It’s our far-flung future issue, in which we look back at the shape of things to come, including parodies of time traveling sci-fi flicks “Back to the Future” and “A.I. Artificial Intelligence.” Plus, MAD examines prognosticators like astrology, palm reading, and, just for good measure, a little MAD E.S.P with birthday boy Al Jaffee for his 100th year on this planet, and some new outta this world art by Tom Richmond! We predict there will be a new Fold-In by Johnny Sampson too! Materializing in stores APR. 13th!

    MAD MAGAZINE #21

    Don’t throw in the towel…we’re bringing you our "A" game! (as in ALFRED E. NEUMAN!) For MAD #21, the Usual Gang of Idiots overcame a ton of adversity and charged through the archive to round up so many athletic-supportive MAD classics it could fill Fenway Park! Score big with hit parodies like the Karocky Kid, All the Right Movements, and Raving Bully. Sergio Aragonés takes a MAD Look at Baseball AND Basketball. Dave Berg hits a home run with the best of?the Lighter Side of Sports. Even team Black Spy and Team White Spy get into the game! And finally, slide into first with a winning new Fold-In?by writer/artist Johnny Sampson. It’s time to take one for the team…heck, why just one? Take fifteen copies, so they don’t have to share!
