Brooklyn Vegan has sad news.
Mad magazine, which has been bringing the world satire and snappy comebacks to stupid questions for 67 years, will largely stop publishing new content after its next issue which is due this fall. There will still be regular issues of Mad but will feature â€œclassic, best of and nostalgic contentâ€ with a new cover. Publisher DC Comics says there will still be end-of-year specials â€œwhich will always be new.â€ In this new form, Mad will also only be available in comic book stores and to subscribers.
Founded in 1952, Mad began as a comic before switching to a magazine format in 1955.
It must be becoming impossible to produce a humor magazine based on satire when real everyday events so frequently are even more preposterous.
