MAD Zombies

It’s been ages since I’ve picked up a copy of MAD Magazine, but the current “Zombie Issue” with a worm riddled Alfred E. Neuman munchin’ a brain on the cover had me quickly adding it to the grocery cart. Well, I got home and was about half way through reading it when I suddenly remembered why I don’t buy MAD anymore. But in all fairness this issue is not a total loss. The eternally awesome Sergio Aragones still delivers the goods with his brilliantly clever “Look At Zombies” strips… and I suppose there’s a few other moments scattered here and there throughout the issue that are chuckle-worthy, in particular one really funny gag concerning a hate crime against a mummy family.

In a weird role reversal, the Cracked website is a million times funnier than anything MAD has done in the last 20 years. And I used to hate Cracked!

That is one bad-ass cover! For the record, I always preferred Cracked as a kid. Long live Sylvester P. Smythe!
