Mad Magazine To Stay In New York?

mm510_c1_us1So DC Comics is set to move its entire operation to Burbank, part of the Warner Bros studios. It should happen in April 2015. But there's one group of folk that haven't been mentioned.

And that's the guys who create MAD Magazine, bought by DC Comics and moved into their New York offices.

Back when the DC administrative and digital staff moved to Burbank, but the editorial, sales and publishing staff remained in New York,  MAD blogger Tom Richmond wrote,

Good news for MAD, because I doubt many or any of the current staff would be too interested in relocating from NYC to Burbank. I've got nothing except my personal feeling about that, but the MAD staff and born and bred New Yorkers and it would be hard to see them eating sprouts and drinking vitamin water out in L.A.

Then last year the news came down that everyone would be joining the folk at DC. What would that mean for MAD?

Well, I've been told by well connected sources, that MAD Magazine will be staying in New York and staff don't have to make a choice, the only DC Comics brand or publication to get that choice. Whether they stay in the DC Comics offices or not, I don't know. But they'll be in Manhattan in 2015, when they have to say goodbye to the superhero and Vertigo folks.

Say, I wonder if they are hiring?
