Sam Viviano on DC ALL Access

March 13th, 2014 | Posted in MAD Magazine


MAD art director Sam Viviano is featured on DC All Access showing off tiny versions of the 21 upcoming MAD variant DC Comics covers, and giving a little tour of his office. His segment begins at 6:11 of the video below, the variant cover images are too small to get a good look at, but he does show off some other artwork hanging in his office including his cameo in Hermann Mejia‘s amazing “Road to Perdition” parody splash, some hack’s lame Harry Potter art and Sam’s first artwork for MAD, the cover of MAD #223!

By the way, today is Sam’s birthday! He’s 61!

Today is also Al Jaffee‘s birthday! He’s 842!

Happy birthday, gentlemen!


  1. Ahhhh nostalgia. Can hardly wait to pick up a copy of the print edition in June!
