  • In the late 1940s, Jack Davis’ animated and exuberant images possessed a sense of spontaneous energy that proved to have universal appeal in every medium he worked in. Beginning with his masterful pen and ink cartooning at EC Comics, he quickly forged a reputation as one of the most versatile artists in comics, drawing humor, horror, and war stories. In Harvey Kurtzman’s MAD, especially, Davis made a mark as a master of caricature, composition, and wild, anarchic crowd scenes, practically vibrating with energy. After stints at MAD, Trump, and Humbug, Davis illustrated movie posters, magazine articles, magazine fiction, LP jackets, and more.
  • Jack Davis: Drawing American Pop Culture is a gigantic, unparalleled, career-spanning retrospective, between whose hard covers resides the greatest collection — in terms of both quantity and quality — of Jack Davis’ work ever assembled.

About the Author:

One of America’s most beloved and best known illustrators, Jack Davis was born on December 2, 1924 in Atlanta, Georgia. He passed away in 2016.

Review:

“The only real problem with this beautifully produced book is that it’s much, much too short.... The art reproduces gorgeously... and the volume as a whole is an effort to give Davis the respect he deserves as a legitimate artist.”
- Hillary Brown, Paste

Jack Davis: Drawing American Pop Culture – A Career Retrospective is a wonderful tribute to the prolific artist... An amazing lifetime of work.”
- The Christian Science Monitor
