Appearances of Martha Stewart in MAD
MAD Magazine #342 • USA • 1st Edition - New York
Little did we realize, as we were reading Rick Geary's artistic debut for MAD, that this wouldn't be the last time we'd hear "Martha Stewart" and "courtroom" in the same sentence. Julie Klam wrote "Martha Stewart Remakes The O.J. Trial 'Perfect,'" which is a major reason why MAD #342 (January/February '96) is one of my 20 all-time favourite issues of MAD.

Why was "Martha Stewart Dying," which ran on the back cover of MAD #357 (May '97), so special for long-time MAD photographer Irving Schild?

I can never tell whether I'm making Ray Alma's day or driving him bonkers when I post a portion of "Detroit Rock Sissies." A MAD milestone as it was the first full-length MAD movie parody for both Ray and writer Desmond Devlin, it also ranks right up there with "The Tommy-Red Seed" (#174) and "Judge Dreck" (#338) as one of the all-time strangest choices for a MAD movie satire. Still extremely entertaining despite (or as a result of) the box-office failure of the 1999 KISS vanity flick Detroit

Conceived by writer Scott Mendenhall, this tribute to Martha's prison ink originally ran in The Fundalini Pages of MAD #455 (July '05) and was posted on MAD's blog The Idiotical in mid-2013.
