Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Harvey Kurtzman (1924-1993) was a cartoonist, writer, editor and comics genius. He is probably best remembered for MAD, which he founded in 1952. He created 28 revolutionary issues for E.C. publisher Bill Gaines (for whom he also created Two-Fisted Tales and Frontline Combat) with such talent as Will Elder, Jack Davis, and Wally Wood before leaving in 1956.
Kurtzman then created the short-lived satire magazine Trump for Playboy publisher Hugh Hefner in 1957. He followed with the comic-size Humbug in 1958, then Help! magazine. During his Help! tenure he discovered such diverse talent as Terry Gilliam, Gloria Steinem, Gilbert Shelton, and R. Crumb. In 1962 he and collaborator Will Elder began producing the long-running and elaborate Little Annie Fanny comic forPlayboy. In the '70s he became known as the "father-in-law of underground comix" for inspiring a new generation of media-bending cartoonists.

I've had the original out of print book downloaded in pdf format for years and finally I was exited to finally be able to buy the physical book. It is extremely well made, binding well sewn, cover character is glossy embossed, thick page stock, colors well chosen to contrast opposing areas, and page breaks with patterns and Harvey's character punctuate the stories. Great thought and care was put into this. It must have been costly. I can't find anywhere in the acknowledgements or elsewhere, credit to the book designer. Which seems unfortunate. A page on the subject would have been nice, as printing quality was something Harvey always fought for. The black interesting cloth over the binding is screen printed on with white lettering and logos. The original shape/size of the book has been exadurated to a unique comic book-like oblong size which works very well considering the format of the art inside. About 8"x 12" Which will also do well to fit the next volume's content, Harvey Kurtzman's "Hey Look" comic strips. The book's cover price is US 25.00 but I bought it from Amazon which always sells for well below.It is worth the cover price. Personally I love high quality book's and I very much love this book. I love this just holding it and feeling the cover!
A few writings are featured by Dennis Kitchen, Robert Crumb and others. My only nitpick is in wishing someone would have written about Harvey's last days. He would have been proud and happy to see this.
I'll end this review quoting My favorite part in the Jungle Book. It's about the comic book format which I've always found strange, no real first page, art shrunk down so small, etc. first time I read, "The Organization Man in the Flannel Executive Suite" I laughed out loud....
"We keep our investment low, income high, margin of profit wide. Since cover stock accounts for half our production costs, we'll illiminate expensive cover stock and print covers directly on first and last pages of the body will cut costs 50%... And if we cut costs on the body of the book, the same as we do on the covers, we will have a margin of profit of 100% the gross. "
-"But Mr Shlock if you aluminate the cover and you eliminate the body there's nothing left to sell and there will be no profit."
- "Nothing left to sell??? By golly he's right! There is nothing left!"
