Al Jafee's MAD Magazine fold-outs - interactive showcase

MAD Magazine is one of America's leading humo[u]r mags and is published by DC Comics. One of the most revered aspects of the magazine are the illustrated fold-outs that appear each issue. These are designed by renowned cartoonist Al Jaffee.

The main point of these subversive fold-outs is to comment on American politics, everyday life and celebrity gossip/pop culture, but in a subtle way that only becomes obvious once the fold-out is folded.

NY Times has just created a small archive of these fold-outs and has enabled them through digital wizardry to fold on your screen. Take a look here.

Sorry DaBitch, feeling under the weather! Can you sort out the attached pic so it sits in the post? I'm a coding Luddite. :)

Enjoy the showcase.

fixed. Man, that should just appear like automagically (like in comments) but I don't have the time to figure out how to code that site-hack right now.

Thank you, thank you!

I'm loving this subversive interactive fold-out, it's so old-school but it has such a new twist now NY Times has digitized it. I'm sure that huge caricature image of Tom Hanks will make people wanna read it!
