In Vernard Eller's "The Mad Morality" he uses a bunch of bits and pieces of past Mad articles (pre-1970) to make his points regarding Mad's relationship to The Ten Commandments.
At the end of the 5th Commandment about honoring your mother and father, he throws this image in which I cannot locate.

Think it's pretty safe to say that the above drawing is not from Mad.
Other graphics in the book are non-Mad also, but the ones that are are all listed here: http://www.madcoversite.com/madpb-the_mad_morality-eller.html

In Meglin's "Mad Stew" a detailed account of the artists is done in the contents and with artists' signatures here and there,
except for on page 108 to illustrate "Answers Without Questions" - one mystery pic. I'm thinking it's old Davis.

Back in mid August 2013 I started the entry of all the Writer/Artist specific paperbacks. Today I can say it's done and organized both chronologically and by writer. Enjoy!

Bravo Doug!
I think we would have accepted pretty much any configuration of those paperbacks but you've done something amazing with those listings.
Thank you for all your blood, sweat and potrzebie! Well done!!! 03.gif 03.gif 03.gif

In the midst of listing MAD XL specials, I've been identifying the largest image source for each cover without much problem, but I have a little head-scratcher for XL #12.


This Wally Wood character was seen in comic book #17, but he's not matching exactly:


Have we seen his match anywhere else?

XL15 continues the "Best of the Web" offerings (many written by Greg Leitman).
Recycled art appears in many cases.
I'm suspecting this Mike Tyson image from Rick Tulka appeared in a regular issue before XL15.
Could be wrong.
I'll call it an original for XL15 unless someone discovers otherwise.

Much-needed therapy, of course.

You've already done "MAD Disco" and "MAD 84" and "MAD TV." Go for the rest of the one-off specials or side issues that contain debuting material, such as:

1994: Star Trek Spectacular
1996: Star Wars Spectacular
1997: Batman Spectacular
1998: Pop-Off Videos
1999: Star Wars Spectacular (#2)
2008: San Diego Comic-Con giveaway
2009: Bo Confidential (a long article in book form)
2011: Harry Potter Special
2015: Loot Crate insert
(etc)


And when you just need that last little push to graduate to the rubber room, try to assemble an identification guide for all the MAD people who've posed so handsomely for photographs and ad parodies over the years.

Just found out from Sam Viviano who the artist for this piece was.

MAD Kids is done.
I have to say I enjoyed paging through this series more than many of the others.
Lots of interesting editorial decisions to make older content more suitable for grade-schoolers, combined with tons of new material from old and new contributors (well... new in 2008 at least).
Sad statement with the last cover #14 as Mad Kids fails to pull back from the cliff...

Thank you Doug for your amazing work with the 2000s' MAD titles - MAD XL, MAD Color Classics, MAD Classics and MAD Kids!

This is a wonderful wealth of information and, even though I didn't purchase MAD Kids myself, it is amazing to see the balance of new and repurposed material in that series. I get the sense that I should have given it more credit than I actually did.

As for those extra one-off titles, I shudder to think of you actually going to more trouble for the MAD Cover Site than you already have!
But whatever you decide, you've done amazing things for MAD and its fandom and WE SALUTE YOU!!!
