For some of us Mad magazine was our life. We were much more than mentally cracked(sic) by its humor. It’s leaving the newsstand to go to direct subscription but then again perhaps that is the way of the world.
Here is the latest:
– DC Comics confirms that MAD will no longer create original content
– Magazine will no longer be available on newsstands
– Mag will continue to publish reprinted material, and will be available via subscription and direct markets

I am profoundly sad to hear that after 67 years, MAD Magazine is ceasing publication. I can’t begin to describe the impact it had on me as a young kid – it’s pretty much the reason I turned out weird. Goodbye to one of the all-time greatest American institutions. #ThanksMAD pic.twitter.com/01Ya4htdSR

I need to clarify the MAD rumors: MAD isn't shutting down but is only leaving the newsstand and will be sold to the direct market. The best thing to do is buy MAD and support it as much as possible, it's not going away!

Just heard the heartbreaking news that after nearly 70 years, #MADmagazine is shutting down regular operations. Here’s weird 9-year-old me getting even weirder reading the funniest, most subversive stuff my parents would allow (because they didn’t get it). #thanksMAD pic.twitter.com/55Q7kYpUAt

The end of an era. The death of American humor.

MAD Magazine deserves credit for being home to SPY VS SPY, created by a Cuban refugee who didn't speak English and was able to portray the pettiness of international espionage completely without dialogue. Antonio Prohias was a genius and is just as relevant today. pic.twitter.com/e4t7iWbA2r
