The material in this book is not merely warmed over - it's gotten stuck to the cast-iron frying pan!MAD for Decades features reprints (and, in most cases, re-re-re-reprints) of material from the magazine from 1952 through 1999. This book is a comprehensive cross-section of the satirical periodical since its original inception as pulpy comic fare. Most of the old standbys are represented herein: "The Lighter Side," Spy vs. Spy, movie and television satires, and about four thousand articles penned [...]

When most people think of MAD Magazine, it's probably the intentionally cheezy movie and TV parodies in comics form that spring to mind (along with iconic mascot Alfred E. Neuman). MAD, however, was very much an act of rebellious artistic subversion in its early days: this is the snark we laughed at in the pre-Internet age before sharing memes on Facebook. Publisher and MAD mastermind Bill Gaines had very infamously been the sole member of the comics industry to stand up to attempts by watchdogs [...]

Pocas lecturas ligeras son mejores que recordar los buenos momentos en que reiamos de las sátiras de estos irrespetuos caricaturistas. Lo compartimos cientos de veces mi hermano y yo (aunque yo no compraba las revistas por falta de presupuesto infantil). No había personaje famoso que pasara desapercibido por Mad, ni pelicula que no le hicieran parodia. Cualquiera que se jacte de ser Ochentero recardará los buenos momentos de risas. BIA, aqui te tengo el regalo. AJ

I was a big fan as a kid -- my optimal reading years would have been the mid-70's.So far, the stuff from the 50's just sucks. SUX.The 60's was lame.The 70's -- optimal years.The 80's -- plenty to skewer.The 90's -- 's alright.

It feels like a history of my life. I starting reading MAD magazine back in my teens. This was a fun (and for me nostalgic) read. A friend gave me this last night, and I stayed up most of the night reading it.

Fifty years of the best - or is it the worst? - from Mad Magazine. Some of it's brilliant, some of it's stupid, but all of it's funny! If you ever loved MAD, buy this book!

Such a guilty pleasure, but a pleasure none-the-less.

Today I learned that Mad Magazine either isn't, or possibly never was, as funny as I recall it being.
