Alan Bernstein, Co-Producer/Director of When We Went MAD! was interviewed on his local FOX 2 News station. Take a look:
Welcome to the home of When We Went MAD!
In 1952, William M. Gaines, owner and publisher of E.C. comics – a successful line of horror, science fiction, and war comics – suggested to his editor, Harvey Kurtzman, that he could earn more by putting out a less demanding comic, one that required less attention to detail and historical accuracy – perhaps a humor comic.
Harvey created MAD.
And MAD changed the world.
When We Went MAD! is a documentary film celebrating the history and influence of a simple comic book that became the unofficial guide to exposing the mad-ness of life.
