I still have a handful of Mads from the early and mid-70s as well as 5 or 6 books from the 1960s. I'm gonna scour the valley for a copy of the August issue.

Like so many others, Mad Magazine was a crucial part of my developing sense of humor and of the world. Al Jaffe, Harvey Kurtzman, Sergio Aragones, Don Martin, Bill Gaines, Al Feldstein, Mort Drucker, Dave Berg, Jack Davis... all names I just pulled out of my head from 40+ years ago, no need to look them up. These people were huge in my life for a decade or so and now, all these years later, I don't regret any of the time I spent with their work or their influence; in fact, I cherish it as one of the richest things in my life's experience.

Hell, I still have at least 4 of the original Alfred E. Neuman posters I bought as a kid in the '70s. I'm gonna have to find a nice frame for one of them now, I guess. It'll look great in my library.
