Some Mark Twain enthusiasts may also be interested in Mad Magazine. (I think 
Mark Twain would have been.) Judith Lee and I are following our special 
issue of Studies in American Humor on Mad Magazine with a book. Here is the 
call for papers:

Call for papers for a book on Mad magazine. We are looking for scholarly 
examinations of the magazine, its humor, its artists, its cultural and 
political impact, and its influence. The book is under consideration by a 
major university press, and will expand what was covered in a recent special 
issue of Studies in American Humor. Here is the link to the contents of that 

Possible topics include the following:  feminist approaches; racial issues; 
humor types/genres/media; movie and TV parodies; recurring features, such as 
“Spy vs. Spy”; examinations of specific artists/writers; precursors; 
legacy/influence; and others.

Please send queries or proposals by September 15, 2015 to Judith Yaross Lee, 
the editor of Studies in American Humor:  [log in to unmask]
