This site is a volunteer project with the goal of documenting and indexing all MAD collectibles such as magazines, books and merchandise for the free use of MAD readers, collectors, fans and other uneducated people.
Warning: Mad Magazine is a highly sophisticated, satiric commentary on virtually all phases of American culture and should not be overlooked as a literary source!
