In this issue I did the art for a parody of The Dark Knight Rises, written by Arnie Kogen. Why so late after the film came out in July, you ask? Good question, you’ll have to ask the MAD editors that one. In the meantime, I will post some sneak peeks of it tomorrow.

So, what are you waiting for? Go buy a furshslugginer copy, clod!
