I'm MAD!!! Gimme more!

MAD magazine was poking fun at everything that dared poke its head above the horizon--movies, pop culture, everyday life, and politics--before I was alive, and continues today. From all this material, the MAD staff has culled some of their best gags from recent years to put into this innovative gift book. This is as close to a multi-media presentation as paper and ink can get--there are popups, pullouts, foldouts, and even a fold in (that manipulable image which MAD magazine readers will remember fondly from the back cover). Everything works, and the book repays time spent in careful examination of the small details.

The only problem I have with this collection is that with all those decades of rich material to draw from, this book is limited mostly to the Clinton era up to the 2008 election. Other than some (very small) cover reproductions, nothing before the Clinton era is included. The editors missed a great chance to bring older material to life in this fun format for a new generation of readers.

So I rate the included material five stars--but have to subtract one for the gimme-more material I wish was there.
