Beyond The Bat: MAD’s Al Jaffee Sets New Guinness World Record at 95th Birthday Celebration


Al Jaffee, MAD Magazine’s longest running contributor, recently set the Guinness World Record for “Longest Career as a Comics Artist” as he celebrated his 95th birthday.

His illustrious career was celebrated last night at Sardi’s Restaurant in New York. Fans should remember him as the mind behind the iconic MAD “fold-in.”

We at DKN would like to congratulate Al Jaffee on an unprecedented career in the comic book industry and applaud him for continuing to live the dream. You can find some photos from the event below, courtesy of DC Entertainment.

After falling into a vat of chemicals, this fellow adopted the name "Eric Joseph." Some say he is a freelance writer, while others say he can be found frequenting conventions and nightspots in the Detroit area. Needless to say, he prefers his background to be multiple choice.
