For years, MAD MAGAZINE and the Man of Steel have had a very … unique relationship. It was only fitting, then, that to commemorate Superman’s 75th anniversary, MAD has come up with their own special magazine-sized summer one-shot that collects some of their most beloved Superman-centric parodies, gags, spoofs, and more!
“MAD has a long, and widely respected history of standing up for truth, justice and the American way. Now that our own company has come up with a superhero dedicated to the same things, a partnership seemed like a natural,” MAD editor John Ficarra told us (for more from Ficarra about MAD SUPER SPECTACULAR: SUPERMAN, MAN OF STEEL, read the full interview he recently conducted with POPMATTERS).
In addition to the side-splitting reprinted content in MAD PRESENTS SUPERMAN #1, this collector’s issue also features seven pages of all-new content that pays a distinctly MAD tribute to Man of Steel, the highly anticipated film that’ll be hitting theaters this weekend.
For sneak peeks at some of the hilarious new features in MAD SUPER SPECTACULAR: SUPERMAN, MAN OF STEEL, check out the exclusive previews of the issue that ran in SLASH FILM, MTV GEEK, and AIN’T IT COOL NEWS. And don’t forget to pick up MAD SUPER SPECTACULAR: SUPERMAN, MAN OF STEEL for even more new Man of Steel content!
MAD SUPER SPECTACULAR: SUPERMAN, MAN OF STEEL flies onto newsstands today. The issue is also available digitally via MAD’s iPad app!
