Will Elder 1921-2008

Above: Harvey Kurtzman, Will Elder.

One of the greats has passed away.

Will Elder, famous for his work with Harvey Kurtzman on the old Mad magazine (back when it was a comic book) as well as the Playboy feature Little Annie Fanny, passed away. He was 86 years old.

There will be a funeral service Sunday.

I have no further information at this time.

Very sad news.
