Popmatters.com has an exclusive first look at the cover of MAD #522, featuring the art of the incomparable Sergio Aragon?¬©s! That link also contains a sneak peek at some interior features of #522 including Al Jaffee‘s Fold-In and an interview with MAD editor John Ficarra. That interview reveals that the issue contains a parody of “The Hobbit” entitled “The Slobbit”. It does not tell you that the art for said parody was by yours truly… probably because John is embarrassed to admit they still give me work.
Sergio has done two other MAD covers, way back in 1979 for #210 and in 1990 for #293. The original of that latter cover art, by the way, is currently hanging in the Toonseum in Pittsburgh, PA as part of the awesome Reuben Art show.
