Vids I Dig 060: Comic Tropes: The Man Who Made ‘MAD’: Harvey Kurtzman

From Comic Tropes’ YouTube description: Mad Magazine has been running since 1952 but this past week it was announced that it would be ending its run. It seems like a good time to look at Harvey Kurtzman, the man who created Mad and served as its first editor through 1956. A cartoonist, writer, and editor, Kurtzman accomplished a lot and set the template for a humor magazine that would be influential to generations for decades to come.
