More from The Hollywood Reporter:
Sources tell THR that after issue 9, MAD will no longer be sold on newsstands and will only be available through comic book shops as well as mailed to subscribers. After issue 10, there will no longer be new content in subsequent issues save for the end-of-year specials (those will be all-new). Beginning with issue 11, the magazine will only feature previously published content — classic and best-of nostalgic fare — from its massive fault of the past 67 years. DC, however, will also continue to publish MAD books and special collections.
This is probably pretty accurate:
So, was the death blow for MAD Magazine when Trump compared Buttigieg to Alfred E. Newman & nobody knew who that was?
