Críticas:

This giant gift-book portfolio of Davis' work reflects the high standard of design and archival presentation that is Fantagraphics' specialty... and it affords readers a panoramic view of the evolution and contributions of one of this country's most recognizable and influential cartoonists. --Casey Burchby"

The Davis book fill[s] 200 pages with full-sized examples of the half-cartoony/half-photographic approach that Davis brought to Mad magazine and countless movie posters. [It] offer[s] ample visual evidence of how [Davis] found the 'art' in commercial art, turning work-for-hire assignments into opportunities to express [his] particular vision of the world. --Noel Murray"

Jack Davis: Drawing American Pop Culture A Career Retrospective is a wonderful tribute to the prolific artist... An amazing lifetime of work. "

The only real problem with this beautifully produced book is that it s much, much too short.... The art reproduces gorgeously... and the volume as a whole is an effort to give Davis the respect he deserves as a legitimate artist.--Hillary Brown"

Jack Davis: Drawing American Pop Culture A Career Retrospective is a wonderful tribute to the prolific artist... An amazing lifetime of work. "

Reseña del editor:

  • In the late 1940s, Jack Davis’ animated and exuberant images possessed a sense of spontaneous energy that proved to have universal appeal in every medium he worked in. Beginning with his masterful pen and ink cartooning at EC Comics, he quickly forged a reputation as one of the most versatile artists in comics, drawing humor, horror, and war stories. In Harvey Kurtzman’s MAD, especially, Davis made a mark as a master of caricature, composition, and wild, anarchic crowd scenes, practically vibrating with energy. After stints at MAD, Trump, and Humbug, Davis illustrated movie posters, magazine articles, magazine fiction, LP jackets, and more.
  • Jack Davis: Drawing American Pop Culture is a gigantic, unparalleled, career-spanning retrospective, between whose hard covers resides the greatest collection — in terms of both quantity and quality — of Jack Davis’ work ever assembled.
