DC Entertainment will cease publishing new material in the monthly issues of Mad Magazine after the release of #10 in September, according to reliable sources.  End-of-year specials will continue to carry new material, and DC will also continue to publish Mad books and special collections.

Distribution is also being cut back; Mad Magazine will no longer be available through newsstand distribution, but will continue to be sold through the direct market.

DC delayed the move of Mad to California with the rest of the company’s operations in 2015, and instead made the move at the beginning of 2018 in conjunction with the hiring of Bill Morrison as the new Executive Editor (see "Bill Morrison Named Executive Editor at ‘Mad Magazine’").  A new numbering series was begun in April of 2018 to mark the magazine’s creation in California (see "’Mad’ To Relaunch in April").

Morrison left the company earlier this year.

Mad was launched as a comic book in 1952, converted to magazine format and was published continuously for the following 67 years.
