Jack Davis, legendary EC artist and caricaturist, doesn’t do many public appearances, but he will be part of a panel spotlighting MAD Magazine at the Savannah College of Art and Design that sounds worth buying an airline ticket for.
Davis will join Al Jaffee, Sergio Aragones, Paul Coker Jr., Nick Meglin, Duck Edwing, Sam Viviano and Tom Richmond for IT’S A SCAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WEEKEND on November 12th as part of a weekend celebrating the usual gang of idiots November 11-13th. This illustrious group will also be participating in workshops and portfolio reviews with the sequential art students at SCAD.
“SCAD and the sequential art department are both honored and excited about the historical significance of hosting MAD Magazine artists with the National Cartoonist Society, Southeastern Chapter,” said SCAD sequential art chair Anthony Fisher. “This is truly a unique opportunity for students to meet and learn form master artists who have contributed to the advancements in the art form of sequential art and defined cultural satire for nearly 60 years.”
This seriously sounds like one of the cooler comics related events we’ve heard of this year, and if you’re anywhere nearby and like funny books, you need to be there.
