Last week I posted a link to the MAD Cover Site and author Doug Gilford‘s great contribution to the collection of well wishes for Al Jaffee‘s 90th birthday, in the form of a comprehensive list of his every contribution to MAD from issue 25 until today. That was pretty impressive.
It turns out, you ain’t seen nuttin’ yet. Al’s list is part of an ongoing project by Doug to catalog all the Usual Gang of Idiot’s credits in MAD. That’s an ambitious project! He’s even got all of my credits listed: Tom’s MAD list.
My credits pale in comparison to many UGOI’s of course, but looking at it all listed out like that I realize… that’s a lot of work!
According to another great MAD resource, Mike Slaubaugh‘s MAD Lists, I’ve appeared in 85 issues of MAD (once the list is update through #508) since my first appearance in #399, and am currently 40th on the list of contributor appearances, and am only two appearances away from having been in as many issues of MAD as one of my biggest artistic heroes, Wally Wood… however I think each of Wally’s pieces in MAD count as two or three of the one’s of us mere mortals, but it’s still pretty cool.
Speaking of appearing MAD, I am desperately trying to finish a six page parody by today…
