Eisner, Kurtzman, Lee

Some link about the late and forever missed Harvey Kurtzman, one of the single most important driving forces of american comics.

For someone who invented MAD Magazine and has written some of the most biting satires about politics, war, media and Pop culture, I'm surprised by his soft-spoken and even shy demeanour.

Not being an expert on the man himself, I leave it to the linked content to tell the tale about this amazing cartoonist.

A couple of audio files of interviews with underground cartoonists/publishers/academics Art Spiegelman and Denis Kitchen, reflecting on the work of Kurtzman:
