NOTES
With a forward by George Lucas.

Presents 30 years of parodies from MAD magazine, including articles, covers, fold-ins. In the gutters of the book, there are all sorts of detailed behind-the-scene pieces of information as they relate to the films and the parodies.

SYNOPSIS
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.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
