I was in Circuit City today, looking for a monitor stand, and as I was browsing through the games, I saw "Absolutely MAD", it's a single DVD with every issue on MAD on it from 1952 to now.

Almost picked it up, but I think I may check a few torrents 1st to see if I can come across it.

Just passing along the info.

They have an X-Men DVD like that, with the comic books.

In fact, Marvel has those for a bunch of their series, including Spider-Man.

I wonder if they fixed the missing entries on the new DVD-Rom?

I never realized there was a 7-CD set from long ago.

I found one site about the DVD, but I don't know if I can trust the info, since whoever wrote the article can't add.

7 CD-ROMs = 4.9 Gb
1 DVD-ROM = 8.5 Gb

So, the layers fight for control of the DVD?

Absolutely MAD does not have any of the content that was missing on Totally MAD. What it does have is an additional 7 years of MAD magazines, as one was released in 1999 and one was released in 2006.

There is also a DOUBLE SIDED Duel Layer DVD format. (17.1 GB)

So, then you can have a 4-way war for supremacy!
