Milestone note: This is Mark Fredrickson‘s 97th cover for the magazine, which surpasses Norman Mingo‘s 96 covers and makes Mark the MAD cover record holder! My contribution to this issue is the art for the Dick Debartolo scribed parody of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper”. I’d post some sneak peeks of that but Newsarama already beat me to the punch.

Now, What are you waiting for… a furshlugginer invitation?!? Go out and buy a copy, clod!
