This is a rare (these days) issue without a TV or film parody. My main piece is a two pager featuring Trump and Comey and the infamous “trying to blend in with the curtains” handshake. I have to wait until the issue is officially out next week to share it, but I will then. I also did a small Fundalini spot illustration, which I think I can share tomorrow. It was great to see my pals Ed Steckley and Ray Alma both have pieces in this issue!

Now, What are you waiting for… a furshlugginer invitation?!? Go out and buy a copy, clod!

    It’s just not the same Mad without a TV or movie parody. I hope this trend does not continue!

  2. Mike Slaubaugh says:

    Minor typo, new contributor Benton’s first name is “Jim” not “Jimm”. Nice to see two Richmond contributions!
