A long time ago (30 years) in a galaxy far, far away (California)...
It is a period steeped in cinematic lore. Rebel filmmaker George Lucas, striking form a base in the Bay Area, won a tremendous box office victory with Star Wars, his sci-fi spectacular.
During the ensuing craze, MAD's "Usual Gang of Idiot" managed to steal a few laughs at the movie's expense, soon discovering that Star Wars was the ultimate pop culture punching bag.
Pursuing each Star Wars film's release with more mockery, the MAD-men spent the next three decades making a farce of the Force and spreading mirth across the galaxy.
Now, in this special edition, you'll chuckle as the Star Wars saga's greatest moments are mocked by such MAD greats as Dick DeBartolo, Mort Drucker, Don Martin, and Sergio Aragonés; hum aling to the unforgettable "Star Wars Musical", as penned by MAD's master lyricist, Frank Jacobs; and marvel at the real reason why Lucas's lawyers never sued MAD.
And that's just the beginning....
So, pick up this book and see why, when Star Wars gets the MAD treatment...Sith happens! It is your destiny.
