Reading Bill Schelly About Harvey Kurtzman
The other day I dug into links to various podcasts. I was looking for Harvey Kurtzman, who I suppose he is best known for being the first editor of MAD Comic book. I am a big fan of the late Harvey Kurtzman.
I found several Kurtzman podcasts and listened to one.
Most of the podcasts I have listened to they talk too fast. I think they increase the more words per second which makes me not understand most of he words and I am always behind and have a hard tune keeping up.
The Kurtzman podcast I listened to that day his biographer was Bill Schelly. I was very impressed with his vast Kurtzman information.
I thought “Who is this Bill Schelly guy?” So, I googled him. He knew a lot about comic books and their creators. However, he died in 2019.
Then I googled him and his image of his Kurtzman biography book was shown. I recognized that book! I have it! But I don’t remember reading it. I dug through my books and found it. It over 600 pages. With my aging short attention span, no wonder I did not read it.
It looks very interesting with a lot of insight about Harvey Kurtzman so decided to give it another try. It would be a waste of money if I don’t. Since it is so big and I have a short memory I would have a job of retaining it all, I decided to put the names in a genealogy program, listing his family, relatives, associates, and so on.
So far I read about 150 pages. It is very good.
