YOU'D HAVE TO BE MAD NOT TO HAVE BOUGHT THIS MAGAZINE...
"I don't believe it!" as VICTOR MELDREW would say. It's now
been almost 20 years since I bought the first issue of this 8 issue reprint
series of MAD - from the era when it was a comicbook rather than a maga-
zine. Yup, as every true comics fan will know, Mad started life as a comic-
book, in the same format as other 'funny books' of the time. I already had
these comics in a deluxe slipcase set of four hardback volumes, but there
was something appealing about seeing them in something resembling
their original incarnations, as far as paper quality goes at least.
Well-worth having, and if you don't fancy shelling out big bucks for
the hardback volumes, I'd imagine that these 8 classics should be fairly
easy and - more to the point - inexpensive to track down on eBay. Even
if you're not consumed with a burning desire to own these great comic
mags, I'm sure you'll all still enjoy seeing the colourful covers.
So - here they are.
