"Hey, Look!"

THE ART OF HARVEY KURTZMAN, THE MAD GENIUS OF COMICS by Denis Kitchen and Paul Buhle is finally out, and well worth the wait. I spent a pleasant afternoon and evening going through it. Every page held a surprise for me, and I've been a Kurtzman fan for five decades.

In 1966 comics historian John Benson published a small portfolio of ten Kurtzman Hey Look! pages. By today's standards it was very modest, but it was the first time many fans, including me, had seen them.
