Some sad news: Long-time MAD magazine editor (and friend of the AAEC) Nick Meglin died suddenly yesterday of a heart attack. Nick was a key component of MAD's success over the years before retiring in 2004, and a friend to many editorial cartoonists.
He lived in North Carolina and held court during occasional lunches with local cartoonists at Vic's, an Italian restaurant in Raleigh. Nick was a frequent and enthusiastic supporter of the arts and would often show up at area conventions, openings and readings. If you came to Duke/Durham in 2016, Nick was there.
