Exclusive: MAD Magazine #7 lampoons Shazam!, Avengers: Endgame
A few things you can always count on from MAD Magazine are timely satire, outstanding cartoon strips, and something awesome from Sergio Aragones. With all of the superhero movies hitting movie theaters, parodies of your favorite caped crusaders are guaranteed — so this week the news has been dominated by headlines of Avengers: Endgame pre-sales causing chaos and everyone digging on the movie Shazam!
In fact, even James Corden is getting in on the act. Comic book fans will have plenty to laugh at in the latest issue, MAD Magazine #7, and SYFY WIRE has the exclusive reveal of the cover by Chris Wahl.
First up is the exclusive preview of the first page of the Avengers: Endgame parody "Avenjerks," by Ian Boothby and Eisner award-winning cartoonist Gideon Kendall, who cram in everything MCU-related, and even Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse gets some shrapnel.
Secondly, we have a preview of the latest in Kerry Callen's ongoing strip "Funnies," which parodies recognizable strips from the funny pages of syndicated newspapers. Once again, the talented Callen roasts the world of DC Comics and movies based on its characters. This time it's Captain Marvel, also known as Shazam!, who falls victim.
These strips and many more will be available in MAD Magazine #7, which is 56 color pages and will hit newsstands on April 16. Let us know what you think of these strips and this most recent launch of the popular satire magazine in the comments section below.
