Gweek 020: The Great Al Jaffee

IN Gweek Podcast 020, I visit my lifelong hero Al Jaffee (of Mad Magazine) in his studio, where Mark Frauenfelder joins us in a conversation about his life, career, fold-ins and stupid questions.


This was a total blast.  I've loved Al's work since I was a kid, and it's been great fun, as a cartoonist and colleague, to get to know him personally.


And note Mark's enthusiasm for, and expertise in, the history of comics.  He makes an incredibly perceptive point about surprising contradictions in the drawing and editing styles of Mad's editors, Harvey Kurtzman and Al Feldstein.


Al's amazing boxed-set of the complete Fold-Ins can be purchased here.
