MADly rejected – Fish!!!!!!!!

Here’s an example of revision, revision, revision.

MAD’s been doing three strips on three consecutive pages recently, and the sketch above was my first go at it. The editors liked the cat, but overall thought it was a bit soft.

So I put the cat in all three strips, but a comment was made that the cat wasn’t integral in the second one. My editor passed on that it was still not considered edgy enough by the powers that be “even though it ended with two corpses.”

Third try was not the charm. Was told it would’ve been fine for MAD Kids (if it was still around.)
