LEGENDARY CARTOONIST and EC comics artist JACK DAVIS died today. Davis stories from the VAULT OF HORROR comic, Drawn and Quartered and Bargain In Death were adapted for the Amicus film, Vault of Horror.
AS WELL AS his contribution to the US MAD magazine, he was responsible for drawing and designing the US poster for the Subotsky / Rosenberg Vulcan film, 'Horror Hotel / City of the Dead'.
DAVIS also contributed the ONE great thing about the Sammy Davis Jr film, 'One More Time, which guest starred both Cushing and Lee... he drew the cinema poster! Prolific, a role model and mentor to many cartoonist and artist today, rest in peace and take a rest, Jack. You earned it!
