MAD Magazine series number #394 2004
MAD is America’s longest running and best-selling magazine with that name. With its grinning, gapped-toothed idiot mascot, Alfred E. Neuman “gracing” its front cover, MAD satirizes politics, celebrities, sports and more in its legendarily moronic features including Spy vs. Spy, The Fold-in, “A MAD Look at..,” Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions and its iconic TV and movie parodies.
Graphic novels help simultaneously develop verbal and visual literacy. If you have ever read a graphic novel, you know that reading the text alone is never enough to get the full story. You have to interpret the images for clues on characters and plot development.
