Amazon.com Review

MAD Magazine focuses on social parodies to provide entertainment to readers. With political humor, outrageous spoofs on movies and television productions, and the adventures of Spy vs. Spy in every issue, you'll have plenty of things to enjoy when you pick up a copy.

MAD magazine is now in color, so the bold and vibrant images keep your attention and look better than ever. The magazine is in its fiftieth year, making it an enduring favorite that many people recognize. For those who enjoy Spy vs. Spy, this is the main print for the comical series. The two spies battle in every issue, making you wonder what will happen next. Even after fifty years, these spies keep coming up with new ways to play pranks on one another.

MAD Magazine makes interesting spoofs about current movies and television, from the recent Twilight films to news parodies. With interesting sections of political humor, this magazine will keep you intrigued as you laugh at key political figures and their mishaps. Whether you're a Republican or Democrat, the interesting magazine will give you information about the other party as it plays on the irony of politics to deliver news with humor.

With Al Jaffee's legendary fold-in and page after page of world-class stupidity, MAD magazine is sure to keep you in stitches. Whether you enjoy reading about politics and social events from a different standpoint or simply enjoy comical characters battling against each other, MAD magazine is a great way to stay entertained.

3.0 out of 5 stars Simply not what it used to be... January 30, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal
I started reading this magazine in the early 90's, when I was a kid. My dad had a few from the 60's and 70's, and I have expanded my collection since then to include a good amount from the 80's. That stuff was brilliant.

Artists and writers die, we know that. New artists and writers can be good, but the MAD magazine of the 2000's isn't worth buying. Why did MAD start putting in ads? Wasn't it making enough money by itself? I loved MAD for the fact that it was ad-free, and the brilliant writing and artwork, laced with biting satire. Now, the humor in there is more of the "potty humor" level, and is the kind of thing juveniles laugh over.

Now it's not worth the paper it's printed on, and CRACKED magazine has gone the same way and already ended publication several years ago. Last time I read a MAD magazine, I found myself completely bored and impatient with it, and wondering how such a great magazine could have become so lackluster.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly a blast from the past April 11, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
The magazine is hyper liberal which I am but honestly I keep politics and humor in two different parts of my brain. I still love it though. My only grip is they ship in no protection other than a light paper cover so the magazine usually looks awful after going through the mail system. For the cost they charge they should at least be in a plastic bag like every other magazine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for Kids March 30, 2014
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 11 year-old son, but it is not for kids. Either the jokes are over his head or something I wouldn't want him reading. Don't get me wrong, it's funny, just not for kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mad is still great! September 16, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal
Wow, I cannot believe all the 1 star reviews about subscription issues. You guys are hurting the magazine over a minor issue! Complain to the people who can do something instead of hurting the mag's overall rating with potential subscribers!
(BTW I have no connection to Mad except as an admirer.)

I got a recent issue from the library and found it still very amusing. I'm going to subscribe.

4.0 out of 5 stars My childhood life revolved around it ! September 18, 2013
By rr
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal
I was going to give it a 3 because of the substandard comedic relief it exudes these days, but gone are the days when I used to wait eagerly for it. I have stopped subscription because they are so confused whether to keep the humor adult or tend to teenagers. The drawings are despicable and the humor is crass. Its too vulgar for my kids to read and has no irony or satires as in previous decades. The ads arent a problem, a previous reviewer had an issue with that, how does he think they can keep the mag so cheap ? And he doesnt have a problem buying other mags with ads ? Thats not right. Even my nephews now dont want me to hand out these mags to them anymore. I hope we could revive Don Martin & Al Jaffee, to name a few to bring the mag back !

wish it was published monthly instead of bi-monthly plus it takes 3 months to get your first issue. Seems they could process your order quicker than that.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's not as funny, or long
Been a fan of MAD since childhood (30+ yrs now...sigh). It's not as funny, or long, as it used to be, but still a good way to kill an hour or so. Read more
