Mad Magazine #1 debuted in August 1952. It is the only surviving magazine from the EC Comics line of books. Mad had at it’s peak in the 1970s, a circulation of 2,000,000. It inspired many imitators as did it’s mascot, Alfred E. Neuman. Today, the magazine is published by DC.

Cover art by Harvey Kurtzman.

The cover is a click-through to a site that has a free downloadable .pdf copy of that very first issue for your perusal. Enjoy.
