This issue was a rare break for me (and for MAD) from a movie or TV parody. I did the art for the three page “The Last 100 Days of the Obama Presidency” article, written by Kenny Keil and Jeff Kruse. I’ve illustrated a couple of Jeff’s articles before, but this is the first time I’ve ever drawn anything Kenny had written. A funny and clever article. The Washington Post has an interview with Kenny and Jeff, along with a sneak peek at two of the pages from the feature. I’ll post a look at a couple of the spots from the other page tomorrow.

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