Mad Magazine will vanish from newsstands after 67 years



And another piece of my childhood disappears


Once a cultural touchstone, Mad Magazine is halting the publication of new content and vanishing from newsstands.

The seminal humor publication will no longer be available on newsstands after its August issue, according to a person familiar with the matter.
After that, issues will be available only via comic book stores and subscriptions, the source said.
The source indicated that issues after No. 10 of its current volume will reprint earlier material with new covers. However, the magazine will continue to publish its end-of-year special, books and special collections.
The revered satirical publication was founded in 1952 as a comic book. In 1955, it switched to a magazine format.
Former Mad Editor Allie Goertz, who resigned last month, lamented that there will no longer be new content after issue No. 10.
"MAD is an institution with such a rich history," Goertz tweeted. "It informed just about every comedian and writer I (and probably you) look up to."

I read that earlier today. I grew up on Mad Magazine and Cracked. It was like National Lampoons for Junior High School boys.

I’ve never actually seen a copy in the flesh only on the inter web but I used have an apprentice that was a dead ringer for the young ginger kid on the cover.

And to think all that time it survived only on subscription and new stand sales.There were no adverts.
There was a drum set in the writer's office to provide rimshots for punchlines.
