Book Description

13 Nov 2012
"The Usual Gang of Idiots," as their writers and artists have long called themselves, brilliantly satirize politics, celebrities, movies, television, advertising, music and more. (They've never been above a cheap gag or a horrific pun, either.) "Totally MAD" is a celebration of this cultural touchstone and includes such classics as "Spy vs. Spy", Al Jaffee's "The MAD Fold-in", Sergio Aragones' "A MAD Look At"..., Dave Berg's "The Lighter Side of...Planet Tad", "The MAD Strip Club", "The Fundalini Pages", the spectacular movie and TV satires of Mort Drucker, Jack Davis and Tom Richmond plus the outrageous artwork of Don Martin and Drew Friedman. Specially complied by the staff of "MAD", each page is lavishly illustrated by many of the world's greatest cartoonists and humorous illustrators. Whether you grew up with "MAD" in the 50s, 60s or 70s, reading it under the covers with a flashlight so your parents wouldn't catch you, or in the 80s, 90s and beyond, reading it while watching the "MAD" TV shows on Fox and Cartoon Network, this book will bring back great memories and create new ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful overview 26 Dec 2012
What a beautiful anniversary book. This is a large format, glossy and wonderfully reproduced collection from the past sixty years of one of America's most important and entertaining magazines. This contains very little behind-the-scenes history so if your looking for an oral nothing-spared history you may be disappointed but this should really please fans and casual readers as it is packed with illustrations. The book is arranged chronologically with reprints of every cover from the past sixty years running across the bottom of the pages while each page includes a 'sample' page or two from most issues whether it be the parodies of film and TV shoes, cartoons, strips, jokes, fold-ins or whatever. This also works as a mirror of pop-culture in America over the past six years as just about everything that became popular was soon (very soon) mocked in the pages of MAD so you can see each major event in entertainment from Batman (1966) to the dark Knight or Star Wars (1977 -twice!) to the star Wars prequels as well as politics and all manor of fads and fashions. Highly recommended. The only criticism could be that as the pages are merely samples or 'clips' from each major issue you'll be left wanting more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase
As a fan of Mad magazine since the 1970's I was looking forward to this book immensely.
It's a large book with a lovely dust jacket with the same illustration produced underneath on the boards.
The paper is thick and shiny and this book exudes high standards.
As mentioned in other reviews there are samples of issues throughout and running along the bottom of the page are the thumbnails of all the magazines covers up to the date of the printing of the book.
If there is one caveat it is that any Mad fan who has bought and enjoyed books such as "Mad about the Fifties", "Sixties", "Seventies", "Eighties", "Movies" and "TV" will no doubt notice that a large proportion of this books contents have already been printed in those previous volumes. For that reason, and that reason only, I gave "Totally Mad" four stars out of five.
If you do not have any or few of the books I have listed and love Mad then this is an essential purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mort Drucker, Five decades of his finest works. 29 Jan 2013
By WEZ
I have been learning cartoon drawing for over four years, and I have exhausted all beginers tuition books on the subject, ordered this book, halleluja wow an endless source of tuition. I have loved mad for years and always used to search one out on train journeys across London and onto wherever we were going, never dreamed of learning from the caricature/cartoon/illustrator genious of the idiots at mad, I suppose I have become an IDIOT!!! Excellent.

sorry for the spelling, WEZ!!!.
