Read MAD Books on the Kindle Fire!

Just got a new Kindle Fire and looking for something to download? Forget that biography about Lincoln (SPOILER ALERT: He dies!) And you don't need that one about the kid who meets Jesus while having his appendix out. (Yeah, okay. Years ago, we met St. Patrick while having our tonsils out but never wrote a book about it. We just thought it was a bad reaction to the ether.)

No, what you want to download is the first of what promises to be many MAD books available in digital format:

Remembering Eduardo Barreto

"I was saddened to hear of the passing of Eduardo Barreto. His work helped to chart the course of many DC Comics' characters, from Superman to the New Teen Titans. Personally, I was a fan of his work from his time here at DC Comics." - Dan DiDio, Co-Publisher, DC Entertainment

Remembering Joe Simon

“Joe Simon was a true legend in the comic book industry. So much of what we are today is owed to him and his amazing creativity. In addition to one of the great writers of the Golden Age, he was also an editor at DC Comics. We appreciate all of his contributions to DC Comics and the industry as a whole, both on the page and behind the scenes.” – Dan DiDio, Co-Publisher, DC Entertainment
