Seasons Greetings! My first holiday/Christmas/Hanukah/Festivus present selection is a book about my favorite childhood rag, Mad Magazine. It’s a beauty.

Inside MAD, An Ill-Conceived Collection of the Magazine’s High-Quality Stupidity from the “Usual Gang of Idiots” and Their Celebrity Fans

For more than six decades, MAD Magazine’s irreverent humor has warped the minds of countless readers. Now MAD’s legendary writers, artists, and celebrity fans pull back the curtain, or lift up the venetian blinds, or some window treatment analogy like that, to share and comment on their favorite MAD spoofs of all time. 

MAD – an imprint of the much more successful DC Entertainment – invited its own editors, writers and artists to share their all-time favorite MAD articles. Contributors include: Sergio Aragonés, Tom Bunk, Tim Carvell, Paul Coker, Jack Davis, Dick DeBartolo, Desmond Devlin, Mort Drucker, Mark Fredrickson, Drew Friedman, Frank Jacobs, Al Jaffee, Peter Kuper, Tom Richmond and many more. (Not to be confused with noted writer Manny Moor.)

Inside MAD offers a rare look into the twisted minds of the writers and artists who have produced the magazine for the past 61 years. The editors would like to say it’s illuminating and insightful, but unfortunately they can’t – they’ve read it.

-Lee Callahan, Jack FM Seattle
