MAD MAGAZINE’S 1963 TAKE ON CUBA

Even MAD Magazine was caught up in the early 60’s Cold War tensions between the U.S. and Cuba and offered this funny editorial take on a reported claimed CIA plot to assassinate the Cuban strongman, Fidel Castro, with an exploding cigar. One of MAD’s popular artists, Sergio Aragones was sometimes believed to have been Cuban, but he actually was Mexican and Spanish. Aragones has drawn more than 12,000 cartoons for MAD, BTW…

So here’s today’s little political editorial courtesy of MAD Magazine….Enjoy your Throwback Thursday…Mad_cover_Oct_1963
