About the Author
In addition to his pioneering work on the "serious" EC war comics, Harvey Kurtzman (1924-1993) created the all-time greatest satirical comic (with Mad), the most widely-read adult comic strip (with "Little Annie Fanny" in Playboy), and one of the earliest graphic novels (with the 1959 The Jungle Book).
Gary Groth is the co-founder of The Comics Journal and Fantagraphics Books. He lives in Seattle.
[Kurtzman's] best tales are often narrated by a single soldier, the protagonist s grasp limited by the danger in front of him, with his main hope being to get out alive. Not so much the blood and guts of battle here although Kurtzman had a wonderful ear for sound and the unique talent for putting it into words as the psychological state of warriors, the terrors and recurring sense of futility they experience. --Paul Buhle"
