Jack Davis (1924 – 2016)  was one of the most prolific and popular of EC’s illustrators during the 1950s. His comic credits include not only iconic horror and sci-fi comics like Tales from the Crypt and Incredible Science Fiction, but also EC’s war and crime comics plus other series like Rawhide Kid, Yak Yak, the Mark Trail comic strip, and Leslie Charteris’s The Saint comics.  His unique and instantly recognizable humorous style is perhaps most famously seared into pop culture’s collective imagination thanks to his work for Mad Magazine, Panic, and Cracked.

Outside of comics, Davis’ career includes a host of impressive contributions to magazine publications and advertising, including work for clients such as America Online, Arista Records, AT&T, BellSouth, Capital Cities/ABC, Ciba-Geigy, Coca-Cola, Columbia Records, DreamWorks, Entertainment Weekly, ESPN, Ford, Golf Digest, Indianapolis Speedway, Kraft, MCI, Mennen, Michelob, NBC, NERF, Nestlé, Newsweek, Paramount Pictures, Parker Brothers, Pepsi, Procter & Gamble, Purina, Reader’s Digest, Spalding, Sports Illustrated, Topps, Toyota, TV Guide, the U.S. Postal Service, USA Networks, The Varsity drive-in in Atlanta, Georgia and Warner Brothers.

Inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2003, Davis has also received the National Cartoonists Society’s Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award as well as their Advertising and Reuben awards. He was a finalist for inclusion in the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1990, 1991, and 1992 and, at one time, was the highest-paid illustrator in the world.  The sheer breadth and scope of his work have cemented his place as one of the top artistic talents of the 20th century.
