Mad Annual Covers


More Trash From Mad and The Worst From Mad came on the scene in 1958 with Mad Follies joining them in 1963.
With the exception of bonus inserts and most covers, articles were reprints from earlier issues.
Each Annual's contents page has reprinted article titles linked to their regular issue sources.
Where new stuff exclusive to the Annuals happens, I note the contribution title in red.

Fall 1970 to November 1999


Like the earlier annuals, Mad Specials were reprints of past articles, but with new articles thrown in at times.
Each Special's contents page has reprinted article titles linked to their regular issue sources.
Where new stuff exclusive to the Specials happens, I note the contribution title in red.
The UGOI (Usual Gang Of Idiots: contributing artists, writers, etc.) responsible for non-reprinted,
original material has been added to each idiot's respective list.
