Return of The Mad Men

In a world gone Mad, Jack Davis & Co. had a reunion to talk about the good ol’ crazy days of Mad Magazine. “The usual gang of idiots”, as the writers/illustrators called themselves, have been humoring and horrifying readers with their colorful and off-color comic spoofs since 1952.

Looking For Mr. Candybar?

You’ve probably heard of Body Heat and Hard Candy, but how ’bout this 1970s X-Rated treat, Body Candy, that’s up on EMoviePoster? It looks like MAD Magazine met up with one of those candy wrapper-clad pin-up paintings by famous pop artist, Mel Ramos.

In any event, since Hollywood seems so recently enamored with making movies out of board games (e.g., Battleship, Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots aka Real Steel), it probably won’t be long before they start producing films based on candy bars. I can just see the one-sheet now…Snickers: The Movie!

Keep On Druckin!

Along with Jack Davis and Jack Rickard, Mort Drucker came from The Mad Magazine School of Art. Drucker’s cartoony style and celebrity caricatures have made him one of the “funniest” illustrators in the history of the movie/comics business!

Mad About Jack Rickard (1922-1983)

Jack Rickard may not have been as well-known as Jack Davis at MAD Magazine, but he was just as important to the wise-cracking weekly. No famous movie star or TV personality got away from the wrath of his wicked pen…

MAD MAN!

Jack Davis is like the Jerry Lewis of illustrators. What a ham! From Alfred E. Neuman’s MAD Magazine to countless TV Guide covers, his comedic, caricaturesque style has inspired and influenced (i.e., been ripped off by) legions of cartoonists. His parodies will likely be parodied forever!
