Exclamation MAD Magazine coming to an end

After the next two issues, MAD will no longer be publishing original material. Instead, it’ll publish reprinted material until it’s subscription responsibilities are fulfilled and then the magazine will cease publication.


MAD was launched in 1952 and relaunched in 2018 as a bi-monthly. Printed magazines can't compete in today's connected world for eyeballs so it is going away. Poor Alfred. Hope he has a good retirement package.

WOW! Gonna miss ol' Alf.
He must be around 66 or 67 y/o now.
Time to retire anyway. 1952. What a great year.
Only 7 years before Orygun's centennial.

What? Me worry? I wasn't an avid reader but I enjoyed it on occasion. Sad to see another icon drift away......

Just reading some UK press that says they will publish new material once annually as an end-of-year special. Also they will be printing MAD books and special collections. Sounds like they will only be available at comic book stores, but who knows?


There's always The Onion.

Well, considering that roughly half of the people in the United States have lost their sense of humor, it shouldn't be that much of a surprise.
