Sneak Peek: “Fading Bad” from MAD #516

June 12th, 2012 | Posted in MAD Magazine

As promised, a small peek at the art from MAD‘s satire of Breaking Bad in this month’s issue:

Final splash- Clicky to Embiggen

Pencil Roughs- Clicky to Embiggen

A few random panels from the parody:

Last week I was asked about the process in doing TV parodies, and if I had to watch every single episode of the series or just the last season or what. I thought that might make an interesting article, so look for that on Thursday after tomorrow’s SotW.


  1. Doug Gilford says:

    In this case you guys had four seasons to condense. No small task!

  2. Jon says:

    This is absurdly awesome.

  3. Lee Fortuna says:

    Tom, I see you threw the Roadrunner in the first piece of Breaking Bad,nice touch but did MAD need permission from Warner Bros to publish one of their most iconic characters?

    • Tom says:

      Well, they did not need permission because it’s a parody and MAD has been doing exactly that sort of thing for 60 years. Also, MAD is owned by Warner Bros, so I guess they have automatic permission regardless.

  4. Leo Kelly says:

    Very awesome..the linework very loose…as in has a lot of energy.
