Looking forward to this forthcoming biography of the late great Harvey Kurtzman. Due May 2nd from Fantagraphics.
While you’re waiting for the biography to be released you might want to check out Mr. Kurtzman’s autobiography, My Life As A Cartoonist (Aladdin; First Minstrel Books, 1988)
Also coming from Fantagraphics (in June), this boxed set from Daniel Clowes. The New Yorker’s Francoise Mouly and Mina Kaneko recently talked to Clowes about The Complete Eightball.
Thanks to Attempted Bloggery, we can take a close look at The New Yorker’s ninth issue. Go look!
