Dick DeBartolo
Writer, MAD magazine

Dick DeBartolo, one of the Special Guests at Comic-Con 2011, is a man of many hats, which may explain his severe hair loss. He's MAD magazine's Maddest Writer and holds the record for being in 406 consecutive issues. He's written 10 original MAD paperbacks and one hardcover book, Good Days and Mad. Dick's also a gadget freak -- as The Giz Wiz, he hosts a popular daily podcast along with Tech Guy Leo Laporte. Dick also appears on ABC's World News Now showing useful and offbeat gadgets monthly. While working for MAD Dick also found time to write 40,000 silly Match Game questions for Mark Goodson Productions.
