MAD Magazine really hits home in its newest issue, and we've got your exclusive first look! MAD writer David Shayne and artist Tom Richmond take a stab at the popular thriller series 'Homeland' in MAD #523, comparing the admittedly melodramatic show to "weepy domestic stories...that would make a soap opera writer blush."



On June 12, MAD is celebrating the release of "Man of Steel" by unleashing a special issue skewering everybody's favorite big blue boy scout, Superman and we've got your exclusive first look!

With "Green Arrow" #19 on shelves April 3, "MAD" magazine has decided to poke some fun at the archer with this John Caldwell variant cover for the issue.

Caldwell's a longtime "MAD" cartoonist whose work has been featured in "The National Lampoon" and "The New Yorker."

Toys"R"Us and Entertainment Earth are not only going to have exclusive action figures for the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con International, but they're even bringing along a few toys that you can get early, before they hit TRU shelves later this summer and fall! From an Adventure Time two-pack of Finn and Fiona, to an extremely stealthy Predator, and even 4 massive Heroes in a Half-Shell, there's a little something for everybody-- so go ahead and expect a long-ass line! Still, if you purchase any of the TRU-exclusives at the E.E. booth, you'll also receive a free limited edition gold Monsuno Lock and Core figure, while they last.


Strolling along the con floor here at New York Comic Con, it's easy to overlook some great displays. Luckily, we didn't miss the two glass cases in the corner of the DC Comics' booth that held custom painted (and sculpted in some cases) Spy vs. Spy action figures from the famed MAD Magazine strip! Reading the name tags next to the toys came with some surprises at not just the talent involved from the toy industry, but also from comic artists, and even celebrities. Yes, fittingly Weird Al Yankovic customized one of the blank figures as did Adventure Time's Pendleton Ward. Below you'll find info on how the project came about, and also a ton of photos!
