BEST REJECTION LETTERS -- Exhibit A: MAD Magazine
MAD magazine even does "The Lighter Side of...Rejection Letters" with wry style and panache.
MAD artist Tom Richmond has posted on his blog a particularly exceptional rejection slip (the original recipient of the witty rebuff is apparently unknown).
Given its flair and care, the letter is almost an honor to receive. (The only higher honor when being spurned might be a full Al Jaffee fold-in -- with a beaming Alfred E. Neuman collapsing to reveal a towering trash bin of less-than-inspired detritus.)
Here's the seeming form letter that's in rare form, from the Mad mind of Editor Al Feldstein:
If you've got a cartooning rejection letter you'd like to share, then by all means: Fire away. As it were.
