MAD Magazine, the satirical publication that began in 1952 is reportedly ceasing circulation of new material after its most recent issue.
The magazine will now only be available at comic book stores and to subscribers. The magazine became popular as a result of its striking satirical illustrations and parodies of popular and current events. MAD Magazine also became synonymous with its gap-toothed child mascot Alfred E. Newman who appeared on its covers.
DC Comics, MAD Magazine’s publisher told ABC in a statement:
“After issue #10 this fall there will no longer be new content – except for the end of year specials which will always be new. So starting with issue #11, the magazine will feature classic, best of and nostalgic content from the last 67 years.”
