MAD Magazine Madness!!

I am a HUGE MAD Magazine Fan. I love collecting the old issues (50s - 60s are my favorites). Here is a cool little 60 Minutes segment from the early 80s about the magazine. Enjoy.

Until Next Time
Happy Trails

The only times I've really heard about "MAD" magazine is sometimes on the Simpsons when the characters are sometimes laughing at the comics and reading it.

Although, I've never read it because I don't think its really available in Britain and my parents have not heard of the comic so what am I supposed to know?

Eric Noble said...

Micara - I know. It's awesome and hilarious!!

Steven Hartley - I thought that MAD had a British version, or at least was printed in the UK. I remember Alan Moore mentioning reading it as a kid.

Although I live in Britain and I know the newspapers there and magazines there very well - but I've never seen a MAD magazine there.

Although, there is another comic which is aimed for adult humour called "VIZ".

Eric Noble said...

Steven - I have heard of VIZ. If you have any copies of these, please post them. I would love to see them.

I would love to post some VIZ but if I went to a newsagent and bought a magazine - I don't think the people at the counter would let me, and although I'm not much a fan of it, even though I'm a fan of the Dandy and the Beano.

I might as well post some Beanos soon.
