MAD Magazine celebrates 70th Anniversary with new content by Jordan Peele, Weird Al, and more

MAD Magazine #28 will feature nearly 25 pages of new content, out on October 4.

DC has shared the news that MAD Magazine is coming upon its 70th anniversary, and they’re celebrating. The anniversary issue–issue #28–will be available in participating comic stores, Barnes & Noble bookstores, and subscribers on October 4th.

The 56-page anniversary issue will feature original content–about half its pages–which is the most original content for the MAD magazine since the format changed in 2019. It’ll feature contributions from MAD staffers and returning original members of “The Usual Gang of Idiots,” plus original contributions from celebrity MAD Magazine fans “Weird Al” Yankovic and filmmaker/comedian Jordan Peele.
