So in case you haven’t heard I did the cover of this issue. I also did the art for Desmond Devlin‘s 7 page parody of “Stranger Things”, which I will post a sneak peek of tomorrow. BTW between that parody and the 5 page “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown 2017 Edition” feature he did with Jacob Chabot, Des wrote 12 pages in this issue!

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


  1. Arthur Armstrong says:

    Am I correct saying that there is absolutely no slant in the MAD logo for issue 548? If so, is there any particular reason for it? Is this a sign of things to come?

    • Tom Richmond says:

      That does appear to be the case. I have not gotten an answer from the Powers That Be concerning this, and I expect none to be forthcoming or I would have gotten one by now.
