CLASSIC MAD DEPT.
The National Cartoonists Society held the 66th Annual Reuben Awards in Las Vegas this past weekend. The big winner at this year's ceremony was none other than MAD's very own Tom Richmond, who took home the Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year! The Reuben is the highest honor a professional cartoonist can receive.
This past weekend, the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival held a "Jack Davis Q&A" hosted by Drew Friedman and Gary Groth. They discussed a large selection of artwork from Jack's legendary career, including movie posters, Time and TV Guide covers, and, of course, his incredible number of MAD contributions.
One of the highlights of the “SCAD MAD MAD MAD Weekend,” hosted last weekend by the Southeastern Chapter of the National Cartoonists Society at the Savannah College of Art and Design, was a “Spy vs. Spy” competition organized by Anthony Fisher, Chairman of the school’s Sequential Arts Department.
