Harvey Kurtzman is my biggest cartooning inspiration, and his “Hey Look” one-pagers are my favorite examples of his hilarious work.

The book collection of these comics is out-of-print, and selling for upwards of $80, but lucky for us, Chris at Comicrazys has posted some beautiful full-color scans of these late 1940’s cartoon masterpieces.Hey look hard boiled egg These panels are just a random assortment of some of my favorite Kurtzman drawings.

Thanks, Sherm. Yeah, Kurtzman from the latter half of the Hey Look! comics leave me in awe. Actually, more like, "AWWWW! Why can't I draw like that?!" =)

You think $80 is pricey (and it is) for a Hey Look! PB? Then check this out:
Hey Look! Book!

I'd never seen that book before...I guess it was a precursor to the Hey Look book from Kitchen Sink. BTW, I still think that $80 is a bargain for the treasure that lie within the Hey Look book! It's definitely my single favorite cartoon book ever.

I am totally with you on that sentiment!!! I own 3 softcover copies and one hardcover, signed, bookplate edition of Hey Look! Plus A Talk with Harvey Kurtzman and Kurtzman Komix.

I bought the additional softcovers years ago when I got worried that I might spill something on my one copy and won't be able to find another. Good thing I did.

That book was made by Glen Bray back when color xeroxes were first around. I toyed with the idea of getting it, but quickly came to my senses. =) I wish the auction had better images of the pages. The ones they have make the pages looked faded and dull. At that price I would want nice crisp color copies.

Hey Ralleywolf -- and Rob, and Chris: Thanks so much for the encouraging feedback about the blog. Sometimes I wonder if I should post about what other blogs (in this case Chris's Comicrazys)are featuring, but then I remember than not everybody reads every comic blog. It's all about sharing, and you guys give me the fuel to keep going.
