Jack did some of my favorite card sets of that era, as well as his amazing EC and Mad work.
Happy Birthday, Jack!

Davis did all the art for the very first monster card set, You'll Die Laughing (Topps, 1959). And the rest as they say, is history!

Here's a fun interview (Stan Lee host) with Jack Davis and Harvey Kurtzman on youtube. Davis comes across as a real neat guy. It's from the 1990s.
