It’s the day none of you have been waiting for – the latest issue of MAD is available on stands!

Available today, MAD #523 features President Barack Obama sharing the cover (which was exclusively debuted on POLITICO) with Spy vs. Spy. “This issue marks Obama’s fifth appearance on the cover of MAD,” said MAD editor John Ficarra. “He’s starting to get up into Nixon numbers.” And believe it or not, this cover also marks the first time that the Spy vs. Spy characters have been featured as major figures on a regular issue cover in the magazine’s 61-year history!

For sneak peeks inside the issue, check out the exclusive previews that ran in MTV GEEK, CBS’ MAN CAVE, CRAVE ONLINE, POPMATTERS, DREAD CENTRAL, and COMIC VINE.
