Legendary EC, Mad, and movie poster artist Jack Davis finally gets his due in this gorgeous oversized career retrospective. After a forward/career overview by [a:William Stout|398877|William Stout|http://www.goodreads.com/assets/nophoto/nophoto-U-50x66.jpg], the book reproduces Davis works in six sections: Early Years, Comics, Record Covers & Movie Posters, Gags & Illustrations, Time & TV Guide, and Advertising. Each promises a host of riches including numerous sketches, original art from several comics, and beautifully-crafted, forgotten, and fondly remembered art. The book concludes with a lengthy biography by [a:Gary Groth|30809|Gary Groth|http://www.goodreads.com/assets/nophoto/nophoto-U-50x66.jpg] and endnotes. Disappointedly, the endnotes do not include dates and publications for all the included art. Additionally, while one of the great cartoonists of the 20th century, the interesting aspects of Davis' fairly mundane life rest with his work. The book would have been better served with more reproductions and less biography. Still the extraordinary Jack Davis: Drawing American Pop Culture successfully reaffirms the artist's place within the upper echelon of pop culture craftsman. ( )
