If Harvey Kurtzman is known at all, it's for creating MAD. But MAD is only the most renowned of his many endeavors. He left the publication in 1957 and helmed several similar magazines before lucratively ending his career with the creatively stifling production of Little Annie Fanny for Playboy.His legacy consists of comics he scripted, laid out, but all-too-seldom drew, ranging from still-unmatched war stories for EC Comics in the 1950s to his late satiric tales featuring the modern-day Candide, Goodman Beaver. In the seven informative interviews gathered in this book, Kurtzman discusses his aspirations and frustrations. He had a far greater sense of his efforts' worth than most of his comics-business contemporaries had of theirs. Indeed, they would be hard-pressed to compete with the dazzling examples of Kurtzman's artwork in evidence on every page. Those confirm that Kurtzman's boldly expressive drawings were the best vehicle for his wit. As Kurtzman's MAD would have put it, the man was a furshlugginer genius. Gordon Flagg
