Mad wipes up

Short segments from past Mad magazine issues in a compact easy-to-hold format for those times when you need quality reading materials. Were you expecting more significant literary value? Then you're in the wrong room.

The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic-Book Scare and How It Changed America provides a history of "bad" comic books and how Mad Magazine (the "Magazine" part of the title was significant in the early days in escaping the legal and cultural purge) survived and thrived with smart aleck humor that skirted the edges of taste. OK, some would say it tromped all over it, but then those people wouldn't be looking for bathroom reading material, would they? In my formative teen years in the early 1970's Mad was subversive but acceptable (to my parents, at least) comic fun, when the alternatives were lame "funnies" like Archie or tamed down second generation "superhero" Superman/Batman comics.

Flush when you're done--but not the book, unless you want to see the subtitle all over your throne room floor.
