On the Stands: MAD #473

January 18th, 2007 | Posted in MAD Magazine

    Have mine Tom! The Iraq War (Jacob Lambert, Hermann Mejia, Irving Schild) is simply AWESOME and I sure hope they mass produce the chess set as it would sell like hot cakes and I want one!

  2. Matt. says:

    Very good issue, and you still leave me in awe at your painting.

    Also, why is that MAD, as well as other magazines, release the supposed month’s issue a month early?
