(3) The Humor Magazine

from Fancyclopedia 2 ca. 1959
A comic book (put out by Entertaining Comics) and then a freely illustrated magazine (published by Wm Gaines), noted for the high level of its satiric and artistic work. This, which lampooned popular movies, TV shows, books, other comics and all like that in a farcical, slapstick, but by no means unintelligent way, became a fannish vogue in 1953-54 with the florescence of 7th Fandom. Chief MADmen in our little world were Larry Stark (acknowledged as EC's Number One Fan), DAG, and Bob M Stewart.

(4) An Anime Club in Perth

The short form (MAd) of the name of the Murdoch Anime Directive.
