Appearances of Benedict Cumberbatch in MAD
MAD Magazine #527 • USA • 1st Edition - New York
"Benedict Cumberbatch? I'd love to get a whiff of whatever J.R.R. Tolkien was smoking when he came up with THAT ridiculous name!" Artist Tom Richmond and writer Desmond Devlin teamed up for the seven-page spoof of the second Hobbit film, which featured Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of Smaug the Dragon. "The Slobbit: The Adaptation's A Slog" made its bow in MAD #527 (June '14).
