Harvey Kurtzman created MAD, and MAD revolutionized humor in America. But how did Kurtzman invent MAD, and why did he leave it shortly after it burst onto the scene? Through interviews with colleagues, friends and family and an examination of Kurtzman's personal archives, this book tells the incredible true story of one the 20th century's greatest humorists. His family life, an FBI investigation during the McCarthy Era and his legal battles with William M. Gaines are all revealed for the fist time.
