MTV Geek got an exclusive first look at the cover of MAD #520, announcing the return of MAD’s “The 50 Worst Things About…” feature. This time MAD goes after cartoons.
The cover art was done by first time MAD cover artist Chris Houghton, a terrific cartoonist and a great success story. At age 20 Chris was the winner of the National Cartoonist Society Foundation’s Jay Kennedy Memorial Scholarship in 2009. He has since published is own comic book series “Reed Gunther”, worked as a freelance illustrator doing lots of stuff including a few pieces for the interior of MAD, does comic book work for “The Simpsons” and currently works for Disney. He also draws for the “Adventure Time” comic book, although he might be fired from that over this MAD cover.
Congrats, Chris! Great cover!
