MAD's Choose Your Own Star Wars Adventure

Looks like Huffington Post has 'leaked' something from the new MAD magazine... hmm... what is it? Oh, just a piece I worked on titled "What has Luke Skywalker been up to for the Last 30 Years?" (written by Jonathan Bresman and painstakingly laid out by Darth Flanders).

You'll want to click and open your browser window waaay up if you want to read it this baby.

MAD's 100 Dumbest of the Century (So Far)!

I was pleased to receive a copy of MAD's Special: The 100 Dumbest People, Events & Things of the Century (So Far) - and very chuffed to find my iPhone4/Steve Jobs piece was included. MAD's 100 Dumbest of the Century

Here's a pic of my big guy Miles with the book.  Notice the similarity between him and Alfred E. Neuman?  What Me Worry?  Uh, just a little!

Head to the MAD blog for more info, and grab yerself a copy!

Alfred E. Neuman!

Would you believe this is the first time I've drawn MAD magazine's iconic mascot, Alfred E. Neuman?*  It gave me a buzz to do, that's for sure.  Here's a cropped teaser from "Things You May Not Know About the Jury System" (written by Jeff Kruse):
