The Kurtzman Magic

Harvey Kurtzman: The Man Who Created Mad & Revolutionized Humor In America
by Bill Schelly

The recent release of a major new biography of comics-legend Harvey Kurtzman provides a great opportunity to feature a young Dave Sim's appreciation originally printed in Comic Art News & Reviews #25 (September 1974, edited by John Balge), together with Dave's cover-parody of MAD #1 for that issue.

FYI -- Dave Sim appears in the index of that new Kurtzman biography by Bill Schelly. The book quotes from Dave's 1974 interview with Harvey which appeared in the same issues of CANAR!
