Will Elder 1921-2008

Will Elder from Mad Comics
I was sorry to hear that Will Elder died last Thursday. He was one of the best, and certainly one of the funniest, comic book artists (those of you in the expensive seats read “graphic storytellers”) ever to put pen to paper, and always one of my favorites.

For a brief appreciation, see my previous post on Will Elder.

  1. Hee! I expected something much more traditional and instead I got a parody of comic books and mystery stories, with lots of sight gags…. fabulous! I will be hunting down more of his stuff.
