MAD Magazine will be ceasing publication after entertaining readers for 67 years.
Per CNN, the iconic humor magazine known for its satirical content will release its final issue to newsstands in August. After the August issue, all monthly issues will feature new covers but will contain previously released material. MAD Magazine will also only be available at comic book stores and through subscriptions.
Many entertainment figures took to Twitter to pay tribute to MAD Magazine upon learning of this and to express its impact on themselves and pop culture.
This sucks. I can’t tell you how many hours I spent reading Mad Magazine in my youth. This is a blech day for comedy???? https://t.co/qvBWnDFJo4— Ike Barinholtz (@ikebarinholtz) July 4, 2019
