MAD Magazine (also known as MAD) is an American humor magazine created in 1952 by Harvey Kurtzman and William Gaines. It started out satirizing and parodying comic books and other media, but changed to a black-and-white magazine format in 1955, poking fun at everything it could. It also gained a number of recurring features, made by a core team of writers and artists. Its original run ended in 2018, but relaunched to coincide with the move of its headquarters.
