MAD Magazine Issue 1

I’d read this from my local library as a kid. The Spy vs Spy was favourite reason for reading this magazine back then.

The newer reboot has two wonderfully done spoofs of Star Wars and Riverdale.

Infinity by Jonathan Hickman (goodreads.com)
The mad titan Thanos makes his world-shattering return, and his armies fire the opening shots of a galactic war that will be fought both on Earth and in deep space - with our heroes caught between both battles! As Thanos' secrets are revealed, the Inhumans' city of Attilan falls, and the Illuminati find themselves on the front line! And as every Origin Site on Earth goes active, the Builders enter the Marvel Universe. But can the Avengers return to Earth in time to save it, when betrayal in the Galactic Council has left them prisoners of war? Galactic empires will fall as Thanos' crazed plans come to fruition!

an unstable universe

For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulse and precariously stacked carbon code memory. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon
