As I mentioned after had an exclusive sneak peek at the splash page, I did the art for a parody of the TV show The Following, written by Arnie Kogen. I also did the art on Dumb Thing #1, “The Dysfunctional U.S. Congress”. Until the issue comes officially comes out next week Tuesday, I can’t post a look at any of the other art I did from the issue. However there’s a good chance the MAD 20 piece will get an exclusive first look on someone’s website this week, and if that happens I’ll post it. I have linked to any such sneak peeks in the content above, so clicky away to set a look at some of the contents of this issue.

So, what are you waiting for? Go buy a furshslugginer copy, clod!
