Description

Editor of UK edition (second of three editors across its entire 381-issue run from 1959-1994). He revamped the monthly 12-per-year title to more strongly reflect its film-related content on covers and introduced new material focusing on spoofs of popular UK TV shows. His favourite cover: UK #170's Rollerbrawl...



These changes won Skinn the 1977 Eagle Award for Best Comicbook Editor.



The 25th Anniversary Special of the UK MAD ran the following bio...



Skinn's editorship of the UK MAD was preceded by selling the first editor a cover idea for MAD SPECIAL #10 a full year before taking the hotseat.

Holder of four Guinness World Records, Skinn is perhaps better known for creating the world's longest-running magazine of cult entertainment, Starburst (1977) and the world's longest running TV tie-in, Doctor Who Magazine (1979). He also came up with the name V for Vendetta as a character in his 1980s anthology Warrior and is now basking in the glory of mask sales royalties from Warner Bros.
