The first of Roberto Parada's two Star Wars Episode I variant covers for MAD #383 (July '99). Of course, Liam Neeson as Qui Gon Jinn is on the far left, next to the beloved Jar Jar Binks. The second of Roberto Parada's two Phantom Menace covers for MAD #383, with Liam Neeson on the far left (next to Ewan McGregor as the young Obi-Wan Kenobi).
Liam Neeson and Jake "Young Anakin Skywalker" Lloyd teamed up for the Mort Drucker-illustrated cover of the Summer 1999 MAD Star Wars Spectacular. Drucker, of course, also caricatured Neeson, Lloyd and their Phantom Menace castmates for the Dick DeBartolo-penned "Star Bores: Epic Load One - The Fandumb Megamess," which originally ran in MAD #385 (September '99).
Liam Neeson schooled (and later challenged) Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman in 2005's Batman Begins, parodied by Desmond Devlin and Tom Richmond as "Battyman, Begone!" for MAD #455 (July '05).
Liam Neeson's more notable roles include the voice of Aslan the Lion in Disney's three live-action adaptations of C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia series. Artist Mark Fredrickson found Aslan in a more ravenous mood than usual for the cover of MAD #491 (July '08), which featured two articles related to the second film in the series, Prince Caspian.
