Harvey Kurtzman comic
Classic war-story masterpieces written by Kurtzman and drawn by himself or by others from his layouts. An unflinching look at the horror and madness of combat throughout history.
The legendary comic returns with new stories for the '90s! Four all-new adventures and art by Don Lomax, Spain, and Wayne VanSant, with a classic EC reprint from William Gaines' original series, by comics luminary and creator of the original Two-Fisted Tales, Harvey Kurtzman.Two-Fisted Tales, which premiered in 1950, was the first comic series to truly depict the horrors of war. Now this gritty, no-holds-barred comic is back -- with a vengeance! Produced by Byron Preiss Visual Publications for Dark Horse Comics.
All of the creator of Mad magazine’s rarely seen EC science fiction comics stories in a single volume! These stories ― all drawn by Kurtzman, some of which he also wrote ― are from the pages of Weird Science, Weird Fantasy, Tales from the Crypt, and more. With Al Feldstein, Kurtzman created "Lost in the Microcosm," "The Man Who Raced Time," and "Atom Bomb Thief." There's also "The Radioactive Child," "The Last War on Earth," and the titular story, a cautionary tale about how the laws of physics would impact a real-world superhero, delivered in a uniquely bold, slashing cartoony-but-dead-serious style.
The second comic from Timely / Marvel to have the title Comedy Comics, the first took over the title Daring Mystery Comics in 1942 and featured funny animals, mainly one called Super Rabbit, this ended with issue 34.In 1948 the title was brought back with issue 1 this time featuring Marvel's new "working girls," strips such as Tessie the Typist, Nellie the Nurse and Millie the Model.For a time with the addision of this title Millie the Model would be outdoing Captain Ameria and the Human Torch who were by then down to only 1 title each while Millie was staring in 3 or 4 with more to come in the 50's.
You know MAD. Do you know Humbug? Harvey Kurtzman changed the face of American humor when he created the legendary MAD comic. As editor and chief writer from its inception in 1952, through its transformation into a slick magazine, and until he left MAD in 1956, he influenced an entire generation of cartoonists, comedians, and filmmakers. In 1962, he co-created the long-running Little Annie Fanny with his long-time artistic partner Will Elder forPlayboy, which he continued to produce until his virtual retirement in 1988. Between MAD and Annie Fanny, Kurtzman's biographical summaries will note that he created and edited three other magazines―Trump, Humbug, and Help!―but, whereas his MAD and Annie Fanny are readily available in reprint form, his major satirical work in the interim period is virtually unknown. Humbug, which had poor distribution, may be the least known, but to those who treasure the rare original copies, it equals or even exceeds MAD in displaying Kurtzman's creative genius. Humbug was unique in that it was actually published by the artists who created it: Kurtzman and his cohorts from MAD, Will Elder, Jack Davis, and Al Jaffee, were joined by universally acclaimed cartoonist Arnold Roth. With no publisher above them to rein them in, this little band of creators produced some of the most trenchant and engaging satire of American culture ever to appear on American newsstands.
Numbering continues from Haunt of Fear #3(17). Haunt of Fear originally carried numbering over from Gunfighter and Fat and Slat. With issue #4, Haunt of Fear changed to its own numbering and the inherited numbering moved to Two-Fisted Tales with issue #18.
MAD started in 1952 as a 10-cent comic book spoofing other comics. Written by editor Harvey Kurtzman and featuring the artwork of such legendary illustrators as Jack Davis, Will Elder, Wally Wood , Basil Wolverton, Bernie Krigstein and John Severin, MAD transformed humor in comics and inspired generations of artists and comedy writers. Now for the first time, the 23 issues that comprise MAD comics is being offered digitally.
Harvey Kurtzman's Marley's Ghost will see the posthumous expansion and completion of this legendary creator's adaptation of Charles Dickens's classic A Christmas Carol. Kurztman's ambitious concept for Marley's Ghost began in the 1950s as an early "graphic novel"—but was never realized. Now, the talented trio of Shannon Wheeler, Gideon Kendall, and Josh O'Neill will adapt and expand upon Kurtzman's extensive breakdowns and notes to make his long-lost vision a reality.
