MAD #500

Yep, it’s a milestone for MAD and they tried to squeeze in as many of the UGOI* as they could to celebrate. And it’s great to see new work from some of the “classic” artists – Duck Edwing, Bob Clarke, Paul Peter Porges, Angelo Torres, Mort Drucker and my personal fav-among-favs, the underrated Paul Coker.

And there is plenty of stuff by the “new” folks but, alas, I’m not in this issue. Unfortunate, but it’s just the luck of the draw. Editor John Ficaara does thank all 704 UGOI, and I’m proud to be one of their numbers. (And since I haven’t been working for MAD for long, I might actually be #704.)

Issue #500 is a bit bittersweet since it is the last monthly issue. From now on it’s quarterly.
