New "Super Antics"...

...in MAD magazine #1! If you didn't already know, MAD has been somewhat revamped. I've got a few pages in it! I can't shared them all here, but I can give you the first few panels--


I'm pretty excited about this. I grew up in the boonies of Arkansas, and the only "culture" I saw was that in comic books, Sunday comic strips, and MAD. I honestly think elements from each of these influences show up in everything I do. When I was bored as a young kid, I would fold paper in half, staple it, and draw my own "Mad magazines". I think I might be able to find them. If so, I'll probably post a few here.

Until then, go buy a MAD #1. ON SALE NOW!

Please tell me the Potrzebie Comics section is a comic sized newsprint insert, like the classic EC reprints they used to staple into the center of the mag in the, I think, 80's. That's the way Super Antics deserves to be presented, in all its retro glory...

I remember those! That would be cool. Maybe in the future?

Oh, yeah: I'd buy every issue of the magazine just for the Super Antics insert. DC, you've missed a trick, but at least you've made Super Antics official. If this is going to be a regular thing, I'd love to see a Super Antics Digest, too...
