'MAD' magazine goes outside-the-blocks with 'Lego Movie' cover -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK


In honor of the new “block”buster opening this weekend, MAD magazine is getting its Lego on.

EW has the exclusive first look at the April 2014 cover of the satirical publication above, which features a Lego version of famed MAD cover boy Alfred E. Neuman.

The issue is set to hit stands on Feb. 25, but if you need your Lego fix, The Lego Movie is in theaters now. (EW gave the film an A. Seriously, it’s that good.)

And here’s an even bigger version for your Lego viewing pleasure:

MAD Magazine parodies 'Game of Thrones' -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

When winter is coming, there’s not much else to do but sit inside and laugh. So it’s appropriate that the funny folks at MAD Magazine have set their sights on TV’s hottest show, Game of Thrones, for their most recent parody.

The mag promises to “Plunge into Game of Thrones” for its June 2013 issue and, as the headline suggests, we are treated to an image of MAD’s famous cover boy Alfred E. Neuman decked out in the show’s signature medieval battle garb with long, Ned Stark-like hair while sitting on a different kind of Iron Throne.

Check out the full cover below.


'MAD Magazine' does a 'Justice League' spoof -- EXCLUSIVE IMAGE

MAD Magazine created a variant cover for an upcoming issue of Justice League, featuring beloved green-skinned superhero Martian Manhunter transforming into beloved freckle-faced mascot Alfred E. Neuman. Check out the image below! (UPDATE: This post originally featured the incorrect MAD Magazine image. You fooled us again, MAD Magazine!) READ FULL STORY

View of the World from 9th Avenue... as seen on Apple Maps

It’s easy to make a snarky joke about Apple Maps, the Google Maps replacement that has single-appedly transformed a nation of happy-go-lucky iPhone users into ravaging hordes who roam the earth like feral dogs and yearn, hopelessly, for death. (See what I mean?)

But it takes real skill to create a unique take on MapGate. And strangely enough, that take was recently posted on MAD Magazine‘s blog.

That’s right: The people who brought you “Smellville” have hit home with the following parody, which reimagines Saul Steinberg’s classic “View of the World from 9th Avenue” New Yorker cover as drawn by Apple Maps. The Mississippi has replaced the Hudson, the Equator is squatting where New Jersey should be, and Wasilla, Alaska appears instead of Washington, DC. It’s a great send-up that gets extra points for being so meticulously composed; check out how similar it is to the original by comparing it to Steinberg’s cover after the jump.
