MAD Magazine has announced Totally MAD: 60 Years of Humor, Satire, Stupidity and Stupidity, a forthcoming book created by Time Home Entertainment Inc. to celebrate MAD Magazine’s 60th anniversary (preview). It contains a special foreword by Stephen Colbert and Eric Drysdale, as well as “five exclusive essays about MAD’s cultural impact, the origin of Alfred E. Neuman and the magazine’s history, including its landmark Supreme Court win against Irving Berlin, establishing the right to publish satirical lyrics”. It will be available at retailers on October 30, 2012 (pre-order now).
Organized by decade, this oversized 256-page book features some of the world’s best comedy writers, cartoonists and humorous illustrators – “The Usual Gang of Idiots” – as they have long called themselves. In addition, the book includes numbered pages for maximum reader convenience.
