Jack Davis

Mad Mr. Holmes

Jack Davis started working in the comics industry in the early 50's.  He drew for many of the EC Comics titles like "Tales from the Crypt", "Frontline Combat" and "Two-Fisted Tales.  He was also one of the first artists to work on Harvey Kurtzman's "Mad" magazine.  He has won numerous awards over the years and was inducted into the Comic Book Hall Of Fame in 2003.

I was thrilled and honoured when Mr. Davis did this wonderful drawing of Sherlock Holmes for me back in 2007.  This is a great piece from one of "The Usual Gang of Idiots" from Mad magazine.
