Legendary Mad Magazine artist Jack Davis departed this mortal realm today. He drew many classic Mad covers and contributed countless hilarious images to my favorite magazine of all.
He was also a well-known artist in the world of horror comics. Look how well he captured the greatest monsters of all time!
Here’s his take on Tarzan.
And his anti-smoking look at cigarette advertising. Don’t smoke, people!
Thank you for bringing so much fun to life, Jack Davis!
And by the way…Mad Magazine is alive and well in the 21st Century. Take a look!

There aren’t a whole lot of trees in Tokyo, Japan. And so the local crows are hard-pressed to find enough twigs to build their spacious nests. Fortunately, crows are notoriously clever. They are known to craft tools to snatch hard-to-obtain food, for example, and memorize the schedules of trash collectors to scavenge from.
In Tokyo, they’ve found a sturdy twig replacement. Cast-off clothes hangers!

Who knew Tokyo residents discarded so many hangers? Let’s hope they keep it up, for the sake of their local crow families!
