It's a mad Web for `Mad' fans



It's a mad, mad, mad, mad Web. For four decades, Mad Magazine has attracted millions of fans by spoofing the worst of modern pop culture.

Now fans of Alfred E. Neuman and the magazine that spawned the gap-toothed character can spend their time between issues surfing Mad information on the World Wide Web.

Most of the sites are homespun and contain little of the actual contents of the magazine. But for die-hard fans, there's plenty of background information and tons of images.

For interactivity, the most pleasing site is Jordy's MAD Page. The site has a brief history of the magazine, an index of back issues and a place to barter for Mad collectibles.

World Gone MAD has quotes from Alfred E. Neuman, celebrity caricatures and even a Mad Java chat.

The Whole Furshlugginer MAD has probably the cleanest image of Alfred E. Neuman available on the Web, as well as subscription information for the magazine and contacts for tracking down MAD back issues.

America Online also has a Mad section in its DC Comics Online site. It doesn't contain items from the magazine, but there is information on current and upcoming issues and a Mad Magazine and Spy Vs. Spy graphics library. Go to keyword: MAD.
