Founding editor of the comic book Mad for EC Comics. Editor of EC's Frontline Combat and Two-Fisted Tales. Kurtzman was equally well known for the long-running Little Annie Fanny stories in Playboy (1962-88), parodying the very attitudes that Playboy promoted. The New York Times states that Kurtzman was "one of the most important figures in postwar America.", due to his influence on a generation of kids, writers and illustrators.
