Inbetweens: Harvery Kurtzman’s Hey Look Comics

Harvey Kurtzman Book

If you don’t already have it, rush right out now and get The Art of Harvey Kurtzman: The Mad Genius of Comics. Kurtzman was one of the most important artists in the entire history of cartooning. His influence is felt far and wide, not just for great comics like “Hey Look”, but for the EC horror comics, Mad Magazine and Playboy’s “Little Annie Fanny”. Every cartoonist should have this book.
