A Visual Tribute To The Great Jack Davis
This week the world of comics was saddened to learn of the passing of legendary cartoonist Jack Davis.

About a decade after the formation of the Comics Code Authority in 1954 effectively killed off EC Comics' popular line of horror comics, Warren Publishing aimed to bring back some of that malevolent magic.
