MAD Legends Revealed!

Comic Book Resources recently published an all-MAD edition of their enjoyable “Comic Book Legends Revealed” feature. In it, they tackle three legends (or myths if you prefer) about MAD:

  1. Alfred E. Neuman existed well before Mad Magazine ever came about.
  2. Mad Magazine used to sell actual straight jackets!
  3. Every Mad cover has an easter egg of the letters “ind” to form “Mad Mind”.

Check it out here! They even linked back to one of my posts here on The MAD Blog concerning legend number one (Thanks, CBR!), but they also debunk my explanation of the “ind” legend… you decide which explanation is true.

One Response to “MAD Legends Revealed!”

  1. Brian Cronin says:

    You had me going there for a sec, Tom. I was thinking, “Wait, is there seriously another explanation for what IND stands for?”

    Well played!
