MAD Fold Ins

I grew up on MAD magazine. I never subscribed, but a trip to the store usually meant stopping by the comics display to see if the new issue had arrived. Somewhere, I have a load of the paperback books.

The New York Times has an interactive display showing some of the old Jaffee fold-ins. By clicking on the right edge and dragging to the left with the mouse, you can relive those halcyon days. Of course, it is art nowadays.

I read my cousin's copies of MAD when I was a kid. Those fold-ins always amazed me.

I can recall the first time I saw a copy of Mad. I was hooked in '56.
