What, Us Worry? Well, yes, unfortunately. We regret to announce that 2010 was the final year for the Vintage Mad Magazine calendars. We remain hopeful that this unique series will return in the future.
In 1952, publisher William M. Gaines transmogrified an entire generation of readers with the launch of MAD. “For many, MAD represented an introduction to the world of humor and satire.

Read his full introduction inside this calendar.
These collectible calendars celebrate MAD’s enduring legacy with reproductions of rare and classic covers from those early days. Produced on heavy, archival-quality 100% recycled paper with soy-based inks, it is a timeless visual tribute to the “Usual Gang of Idiots”. This is a true 16-month calendars that include perforated images that fit any 11"x14" frame.
