So many things could be said about the wonderful Mr. Davis, but he had everything an artist should have:

1. An easily recognizable style
2. But a style that could be retrofitted to almost any story style
3. Blazing speed

I'll always be a Ghastly fan, but Davis' time at EC (including later Mad) is some of the most influential and incredible art there was.

Wow! What a career! One of my three comic book illustration heroes. Okay, I've got more than that, but he is in the top three. I guess when you're 90, you have to face the facts about retirement... Amazing.

No one deserves happier trails than Jack Davis. A consummate artist, kind professional, and southern gentleman, by god. Thanks for all those years providing the very measure of excellence, sir. I'd toast you with a large iced tea if they had any in this country. Happy retirement, Mr. Davis, I hope it's long and fun.

We like the "Creepy #1" inspired illustration....
That issue hangs on my wall....
And he created the "Bugs" for the old Raid ads.... Such a talented artist.... one of my childhood favorites....

I'm afraid I only know him from a fraction as many horror comics as most of you do, but thanks to his COEMDY work I've always been crazy about him.
