Obituary: Jack Davis, Cartoonist (December 2 1924-July 27 2016).

News reaches me that one of history's greatest cartoonists, Jack Davis, who drew for MAD Magazine and Tales from the Crypt, has died aged 91.

Mr Davis was a huge inspiration on my work, and his flawless takes on celebrities and pop culture, made me want to become a cartoonist. Any fan of MAD Magazine will tell you that his work gave them that added gravitas when it was a rising comic in the 1950s.
