My contribution this issue is a five page parody of the movie “Iron Man“, which almost didn’t make the regular MAD issue. I’ll post a sneak peek and the related story tomorrow.

What are you waiting for? Go buy a copy, Clod!

    Your Iron Man parody “Almost didn’t make the issue”? That would be a shame if it was put in a ‘Classics’ or ‘best of’ or whatever issue. I assume there wasn’t a problem with the quality, of your art or Devlin’s writing. Did they almost run out of time or room or something? Anyway, glad to see it made it and look forward to reading it.

  2. Tom says:

    No, it’s nothing like that. Check the blog tomorrow for the story about how the “Iron Man” parody almost didn’t make it into MAD.
