The Mad Magazine Milestone

sbwfyiseriousVery few things immediately put a smile on SWB’s face.

One just came up – Mad Magazine’s 500th issue is coming out tomorrow.  The magazine tends to be our “idol” of sorts.  We’re hoping we can snag one tomorrow.

Sadly the readership has one down, and the publication will switch to quarterly.  You can get all of the details if you Click Here to read the article by Virginia Linn of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.  The website will be updated though to appeal to the newer demographics of the readership.  So if you like the political and satirical humor of Mad and remember it from your youth, make sure you pick up the 500th issue and help it stay around.

In SWB’s opinion, Mad magazine too political and satirical humor into the world of it becoming an art form.  It no longer stayed at the level of being a teen book, but encompassed the wit of more advanced readers.

PS – Spy VS Spy never got old after the cold war stopped … it just began to reflect society in general.
