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.
