Good (though not Great) News! Mad is NOT ceasing publication altogether!

The seminal humor publication will no longer be available on newsstands after its August issue, according to a person familiar with the matter.

After that, issues will be available only via comic book stores and subscriptions, the source said.

The source indicated that issues after No. 10 of its current volume will reprint earlier material with new covers. However, the magazine will continue to publish its end-of-year special, books and special collections.

The source said Mad is making the change as the newsstand business shrinks.

I'm hoping that the End-of-the-Year Special will include new material (like the Twenty Worst Things), so that it won't ALL be reprints only.

Hey, once-a-year Mad is still better than none.
