This collection of MAD‘s superhero-related spoofs picks up where the first volume left off. It is officially in bookstores now and, of course, available from Amazon.
Most of the content in the first volume was classic MAD spoofs from as early as MAD #4’s “Superduperman” on through “Smellville” from MAD #415. Great stuff, but I was depressed as the book came out¬¨‚Ä† just after I started doing some superhero movie spoofs and so I missed out on being in it.
I definitely made up for it with Volume 2.
My “Spider-Sham” parody from #418 opens the book, and other parodies and pieces of mine include “$-Men 2”- MAD #430, “A MAD Peek Behind the Scenes on the Set of the Hulk”- MAD #431, “Spider-Sham Too”- MAD #446, “Battyman, Begone!”-MAD #455, “Stuporman Returns”- MAD #468, “Zeroes”- MAD #487, “Ironic, Man”- MAD #492, “The Dork Knight”- MAD #495 and “Botchmen”- MAD #499. It’s by far my biggest presence in any MAD book… but don’t let that prevent you from buying a copy!
Despite so much of my work dragging down the quality the book is well worth getting, including lots of Mark Fredrickson cover art (and a Bruce Timm cover from MAD #438!), the star studded “League of Rejected Superheroes” piece also from #438, the San Diego Comic Con Exclusive special Watchmen graphic novel parody “Botchmen” by Desmond Devlin and Glenn Fabry, Lot’s of Sergio‘s “A MAD Look at…” featuring various superheroes and tons of other great art and writing.
Best of all the book is printed in gorgeous color on some nice, bright stock and it looks terrific as a result. In fact it looks better than the art looked in the magazine!
So what are you waiting for?? Go buy a copy, clod!
