Mad Magazine ending … @MADmagazine #madmagazine

Mad69

Mad Magazine which has been doing its thing for 67 years, might be folding (not the back cover, operations). Mad magazine to stop publishing issues with new content this fall – ABC News.

“After issue #10 this fall there will no longer be new content — except for the end-of-year specials which will always be all new,” DC said in a statement to ABC News. “So starting with issue #11 the magazine will feature classic, best-of and nostalgic content from the last 67 years.”

It peaked at 2.8 million subscribers in 1973, but had just 140,000 left as of 2017.

DC, the publisher of comics featuring Superman and Batman, purchased Mad magazine in 2017.


Make16

A million internet years ago in 2008 when I was Senior Editor at MAKE Magazine, Ladyada and I went to DC Comics to meet the MAD Magazine folks for a collaboration issue with MAKE and MAD, it was the Spy vs Spy issue, volume 16 cover by Sam Viviano. Spy vs. Spy is a wordless black and white comic strip that has been published in Mad magazine since 1961. It was created by Antonio Prohias, a Cuban national who fled to the United States in 1960 days before Fidel Castro took over the Cuban free press.

Here are the photos from our visit over 11 years ago.
