Last night I saw the GREAT Mad Magazine cartoonist Al Jaffe.
He told some very funny stories about his life as a cartoonist.
He's 89 years old and yes, he still works for Mad Magazine.
I was lucky to purchase an autographed copy of "Tall Tales"
a wordless strip he created in the mid-1950s. If you have the 
to see some of his work.

I like Al Jaffe, but had never heard of "Tall Tales" before. Thanks for the recommendation - I'll have to check those out!

Hi Sam,
My pleasure. If you're a fan of the wordless strip, I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy this one. Also, this hardcover book is nicely designed. Not sure if the have a softbound yet.
