Disappearing Drawings of "Davy" Dave Berg Early Gag Digest Work
Dave Berg is one of the best known artists who worked for Mad Magazine, joining the idiots in 1956 and staying forever. A Brooklyn boy, he studied at the Pratt Institute when only twelve years old (!) and later attended Cooper Union. He was soon a staple anywhere a comic was stapled, but the work he did in the late 1950s signed as "DAVY" for gag digests is not as well known, and it is leaving fast. Produced for acid-rich pulp digests, soon they will be dust...and even laying them on the scanner encourages chips of paper to fall. All the gag cartoons here are from ONE issue of Pepper Humor Magazine January 1957.
