Harvey Kurtzman created MAD, and thus was the road to our modern era of parody and satire paved. From MAD to EC Comics to Playboy, Kurtzman's expansive body of work has made its indelible mark on American culture and humor. Harvey Kurtzman: The Man Who Created MAD and Revolutionized Humor in America is a heavily researched biography by Bill Schelly, in which we are treated to a fuller glimpse into the life and times of this influential man, including extensive interviews with colleagues, friends, and family, and an examination of Kurtzman's personal archives.
Here is our finalized cover design, featuring the impish, toothy grin of Alfred E. Neuman—the iconic, fictitious mascot of MAD magazine. The Man Who Created MAD is due out in April, so don't delay—get your pre-order placed now!
