Got #9 in the mail today. Very interesting issue. Called a “time warp” issue. Very 1960’s looking even down to the Dave Berg “Lighter Side” feature. New artist copying his style. All new material but in a vintage feel. Can’t figure what they are trying to do. I heard that #10 will be the last issue of all new material then reprints for a few issues to fulfill subscriptions. No subscription cards or offers in this issue...

This Mad looks so cool🆒🆒 so old school 👍🤔 but the only thing is that you can buy a 40 year old Mad , even older for less than the cover price of a new Mad🤔🤔

Only reason I still read MAD is that the subscription rates are so low.

Ran into a weird item. Anybody see one of these? Hardbound MAD paperback book. Are there others?

Looks like a library produced permabind.

I would guess a library edition.  Usually you can check inside the book and see the different ISBN #s based on the different printings.

Different ISBN's for different editions and possibly covers. You can see by the thin outline that the original pb cover on that copy was removed, mounted on a plastic type of flat substance and then reattached to the text block. It's not a different edition just a custom job, done by a library to prevent wear and tear on the book.

Local bookstore had a huge stack of this issue in the magazine section. Was tempted, but it does not seem to sell over cover and the cover did not grab me. I got the Hillary cli ton mad max cover a few years ago because it was hilarious

Looks like MAD might be sticking around after all. I got my sub copy of #10 today. Still, all new content and a full page subscription ad. Note the statement under the black bar in the center..,hm
