The SWU is thrilled to exclusively unveil the latest Star Wars themed parody in MAD Magazine. The comic will appear in the next issue of MAD, which will be available digitally February 13th and on new stands on February 24th, is titled "Star Wars Fans Then and Now" and highlights the way anticipation for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is different from anticipation for previous films. The comic is illustrated by artist Rich Powell. Check it out below,
The cover for the issue, #532, features Alfred E. Neuman dressed as a The Force Awakens stormtrooper (below). The issue also features parodies of House of Cards, 2 Broke Girls, Lego, and more. This is hardly the first time MAD has parodied Star Wars. The relationship between Mad Magazine and Star wars goes all the way back to January 1978 and since then Star Wars has graced the cover ten times, and been featured within the pages of MAD countless times.
