Legendary caricaturist and illustrator Mort Drucker of MAD Magazine fame has passed away at the age of 91. R.I.P. to one of the greats!

...Mort's even got a heavy metal connection, cuz he drew a picture of the band for the back cover of Anthrax's State of Euphoria back in 1988. Note the "Spy Vs. Spy" t-shirt on Charlie Benante!

He was indeed a great one. I always enjoyed his work in Mad. At least he lived a nice long life. RIP, sir.

Big fan here. The man was legendary with his caricatures. RIP good sir.

I’ve seen his drawings all these years and never knew who he was...

Now I do.

RIP

I hadn't thought of him in years but as soon as I saw the name I knew who he was.

RIP.

Same here. Used to read every mad magazine I could get a hold of back when I was younger. Still love them, spy vs. Spy was the best.

R.I.P.

R.I.P.

I never really paid attention to the credits, except for the unmistakable face of publisher William Gaines.

I never knew he did the Anthrax photo! I always noticed the spy v. spy shirt, but I always figured that Charlie was that type of dude to read Mad back in the day.
