They knew it was coming.
Apparently they are as outdated as Svengoolie.
The update says it's still being published but a different way. Probably a website.
Interesting, probably cutting down operational costs. Most magazines are struggling nowadays.
This is what is currently online...
Which is... Pathetically bare bones. I mean... do some original animated product or something. Put up a fake newscast on YT. Something. I can't find after a cursory look a YT presence at all.
On another note... Here's a 60 Minutes profile from 1987.
C'mon, mate! I already posted that second one.
Really? And the general population didn't riot? I'm surprised the thread didn't explode like an anarchist's wet dream.
Really? That is where you went with that? Maybe it is time for you to switch to decaf, mate.
I grew up with MAD Magazine when it was in its last years of relevancy (mid-'90s-early '00s). It's a shame that it's ending but at the same time, it's kind of been on its way out for years. Magazines have been on the decline for a while so I figured it was only a matter of time until the shoe dropped on this one. I can't even remember the last issue that I bought but it might have been the one that had the parody of The Dark Knight in it.
Distribution strategies probably have come into play with this again. Very few places left where one might see an issue and pick it up as an impulse buy.
Back in the day, you could find MAD Magazine in supermarkets and pharmacies but the only place I've seen it sold in the past 10 years are so is Barnes and Noble. Even the comic stores I've been to recently don't carry it anymore, at least not that I remember.
I used to like going to the supermarket with the folks way back when because I knew I could get an issue of Mad and Cracked.
Cracked was another one that I had a few issues of but even as a kid I knew that it was a blatant ripoff of MAD. They seem to have done better as a website though.
So was Crazy, but Cracked excelled at it.
