2020:  Mort Drucker


2020 was a lousy year for all kinds of reasons, but somehow I missed the news of Mort Drucker's death and was unaware of it until seeing your post.  I'm guessing I missed it due to all the pandemic craziness going down at the time.

He was one of my childhood heroes and I can remember spending hours trying to recreate some of his illustrations from MAD.  He'll definitely be missed.
