Paul Is Dead: Five Infamous Pop Culture Urban Legends

It’s hard to imagine a time when there wasn’t an internet, and yet for the long majority of human history, we couldn’t get yelled at by random kids over Twitter. Crazy.

R.I.P. Legendary Horror Comic Artist Jack Davis

While my first exposure to Davis’s incredibly detailed, dynamic and often hilariously bizarre works came through his cover art and story illustrations for MAD Magazine (which […]
