Monday MADness: MAD vs. Viz!

October 16th, 2017 | Posted in MAD Magazine

One of the highlights of the Lakes International Comic Art Festival for me was the “MAD Vs. Viz” panel featuring the one and only Sergio Aragonés and myself representing MAD, and the very funny Graham Dury and Simon Thorp from the British humor magazine Viz, moderated by John McShane. John interviews Sergio and Graham Viz is a hilarious publication featuring a compilation of short comics by various creators, fake ads, parodies of tabloids and letters pages, and other features. It was founded in 1979, and at one time was the third biggest selling magazine in all of Britain. Its humor is often raunchy and politically… READ MORE

Monday MADness- An NYCC Farewell

October 9th, 2017 | Posted in MAD Magazine

This year’s “Mad about MAD” panel at New York Comic Con was special in a number of ways. Oh, it had the usual hilarity lead by VP, Editor and Executive Grand Poo-bah John Ficarra and VP of Art Direction and Grand High Schmuck Sam Viviano. It also had a stellar line up of “The Usual Gang of Idiots” including editors Joe Railoa and Charlie Kadau, former editor Nick Meglin, living legend Al Jaffee, long-time writer Dick DeBartolo, cover artist Mark Fredrickson, and cartoonist Teresa Burns Parkhurst. What was really fantastic was the number of MAD contributors in the audience, who got shout outs from John.… READ MORE

Here’s a look at another series of character sketches I did for a segment on the “MAD” animated show on Cartoon Network.

Monday MADness: X2!

July 10th, 2017 | Posted in MAD Magazine

This week’s Monday MADness is a look at the complete art for MAD’s parody of “X2” written by Desmond Devlin, from MAD #430, June 2003. This parody was done during a period of time where MAD was trying to get their movie spoof on the newsstands at the same time the film came out, meaning we worked from leaked advanced scripts and did everythign prior to the film’s release. In the case of this movie, they reshot the ending after reaction from audience previews, and as a result we got the ending wrong!: READ MORE
