Often the best thing about Mad Magazine was the artwork in the margins by Sergio Aragones. The man knew how to write and draw a one panel gag like no one else. Here are 500 of them for the magazine's five hundredth issue. Not the same magazine I enjoyed as a kid because you couldn't match the early Mads with great artists like Aragones, Don Martin, Al Jaffe, Harvey Kurtzman, Wally Wood, Jack Davis, Jon Severin and Dave Berg. I get most of my distrust of politics and the media from the lampooning they got in Mad which is the magazine's greatest and most important legacy.
