MAD About Sergio’s MAD Masterpiece!

April 17th, 2014 | Posted in General


One of the gems in the¬¨‚ĆInside MAD book is the mind-blowing, pull-out poster illustration by Sergio Aragon?¬©s depicting virtually everyone ever associated with the magazine in its sixty-plus year history. Not only is it chock full of “The Usual Gang of Idiots”, it contains dozens and dozens of references to famous MAD moments, items and other goodies. In true MAD fashion, this is an image you can spend an hour staring at and still miss some of the gags and little touches.

Fear not! The good folks over at Doug Gilford’s MAD Cover Site (ok, Doug… but with a little help from his friends) has put together an interactive version of Sergio’s masterpiece, complete with flags for pop ups identifying each person, place and thing of significance in the image. Go there, zoom in, and get edjumahcated about all things MAD, and marvel at the talents of the Great Sergio!

    AMAZING and FUN,,,great work, Sergio! Your biceps are a bit small though, Tom. Is ‘A.V.’ available? …I’d share a latte with her anytime;)

      That’s Amy Vozeolas. I stole an ashtray from the lobby bar of L’hotel de Crillion in Paris for her once.
