Eric Powell Wants to Start a "Gives No @#$%s" Mad Magazine Replacement

The comics world is still reeling from the news that DC Comics will stop producing new content for Mad Magazine and will instead release issues full of reprinted material, but some comic book creators are taking action. Eric Powell took to Twitter on Thursday to tease launching a satire magazine of his own at Albatross Funny Books.

"I think we need satire more than ever right now," Powell tweeted. "With Mad closing shop, wondering if I shouldn't launch something new at @AlbatrossEFB."

Powell then solicited interest from fellow comic book professionals, writing, "So comic pros (meaning working professionals) how many of you would be interested in contributing to a give no f***s satire comic?" Powell's tweet got quite a few responses:

Although, er… some might be less welcome than others.

So is this thing a go, or what? Oh, and we were enjoying a holiday when the news of Mad's closure first broke, but we've got some news of our for DC: it has been zero days since DC did something stupid. RESET THE COUNTER!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
