Jack Davis, best known for his cartoon work for Mad Magazine, died yesterday. He was 91.
At Mad since its inception in 1952, Davis was also known for his work on EC horror comics as well as his extensive magazine and advertising illustration, including movie posters for American Graffiti and It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
Mad Magazine editor John Ficarra:
"His ability to put energy and motion into his drawings, his use of cross-hatching and brush work, and his bold use of colour made him truly one of the greats."
A giant in the industry, pros and fans lament the passing of the last of the founding members of Mad Magazine.
