encouraging words, reality checks, weather reports...
My goal for the site was simple 20 years ago. Display regular issue front covers.|
A lot more has been added over the years. Here's a rough evolution of those additions:
And I continue to tweak things now and then to try to make this the best resource of its kind.
- Front cover scans of regular issues with rudimentary content listings
- Complete contents of article titles in order of occurrence
- Crediting writers and artists
- Complete Movie and TV satire charts
- Maintaining a price list courtesy of Overtstreet
- Presenting The Don Martin Dictionary in an online form
- Rescanning and improving/enlarging front cover scans to fit bigger monitors
- Magazine back cover scans
- Annuals (The Worst from Mad, More Trash from Mad, Mad Follies)
- Mad Super Specials
- The linking of reprinted article titles back to their original sources in the regular issues
- Charting the contributions of all Mad contributors
- Creating an interactive version of Sergio Aragones' Inside Mad offices poster
- All the other various Specials to the current day
- Linking to every instance when Mad's internet blog has referred to a Mad article in the magazine
- Grouping recurring article types / features into their own lists

|What's with all the Amazon links? For years I've been directing visitors to Amazon pages.
For every dollar you spend on anything at Amazon after clicking through from a link on my site,
I see about a nickel in the form of a gift certificate, which I use to buy Mad-related merchandise,
computer books, ecch!
So CONSIDER COMING HERE FIRST the next time you want to buy something on Amazon.
