He Visited Mad Magazine

I have shown you the little note that William M. Gaines wrote to me in 1979, but artist Drew Friedman has a juicier tale to share. In 1974, he visited the offices of Mad Magazine. Over here you can read his extensive report which is populated with a number of photographs I hadn't seen before.

Back then they awarded visitors who survived with a copy of the above jam self-caricature of the Mad staff. Click here and you can see a full-screen version of this excellent artifact.
