Awesome. I love Mort Drucker and Jack Davis.

Me too,W. And that Al Jaffee sample is some of his best, sort of pre-Crumb but early influence on late 60's underground comix. Bob Clarke is one of my favorites - very versatile, skilled. From cartoony to realistic.

No kidding. Bob Clarke could do just about anything, which is probably why MAD kept him. I want to be able to be like him, to move from any style with ease.
