Hey, I'm 63 years old and still sneak reading Mad Magazine --shhhh! Because it is still funny. Sometimes I am laughing outloud. Like the end of year cover "Worst of 2012" depicting Lance Armstrong ala Alfred E. Neuman. And the story on not Walgreen's cheesy coupons, but Gangreen's cheesy sales coupons. Pepe Le Peu cologne and De-Icer in a 5 gallon size, on sale for $4.99 with coupon. Well, the artwork is what then pushes one over the edge. It may be sophomoric, but laughter's good for your health.

It's even better than when I was a kid. I'm smarter now and wonder how much I missed because of being " Young and Dumb ".

Wish they published monthly instead of bi monthly. You may want to review a copy for appropriatness before letting your kids read.

I just turned 50, and i've been enjoying MAD since i was a kid. Still some good stuff, but it has really taken a turn downhill over the past 10 years and especially since the 80's. Used to be a constant scream, but so much darker and sordid humor now, even a bummer at times. Just like what happened to Monroe - started out great and gradually turned into that funniless series of panels and sordidness. I am especially disappointed that it then seems to be catering to the culture of youth jadedness in order to sell itself to them, rather than sticking to its history of taking the lead in social satire and sarcasm.
It's not the same....

I started reading MAD about forty years ago, and it's not anywhere close to being what it was. All the artists from way back when died or moved on. Some of them were there from the start, when it was EC, or Entertainment Comics. Jack Davis, Al Feldstein....
It's cool that it's still around, but it was so much better back then.
Great funny magazine

I've been a Mad Magazine reader since I was a child and I'm now 62. It's lost a lot of popularity over the years and that's unfortunate. Mad takes current issues and makes them funny. It's written in comic book fashion. As a school psychologist and a college instructor I recommend this magazine to get hesitant learners to read. Once they pick it up they want to learn.
Not as good as old one

I liked the older iussues of Mad Magazine, like in the l970's or 1980's. They were much better in my opinion.
It's a classic

How can you not like Mad Magazine? I'm 35 years old and I've been reading this magazine since I was 6 years old.I haven't had the good fortune of reading every issue, but I've tried to get my hands on one as often as possible.They always cheer me up and I like the weird sense of humor in them. Mad pokes fun at our culture with an undertone of love, and Mad pokes fun at itself as well. My only gripe is that they have for years put next to the price on the cover, "cheap!". It's not cheap, but it's worth it.

Every time my son Brant receives Mad, he starts reading it until he has read it from cover to cover. This is a teenager who detests reading. I'll be honest: I don't read it myself, but the fact that it gets him to read-that is big in my opinion! Thanks, Mad writers, for keeping me from being a "mom gone MAD" over their child reading absolutely nothing!
