“The only real problem with this beautifully produced book is that it’s much, much too short.... The art reproduces gorgeously... and the volume as a whole is an effort to give Davis the respect he deserves as a legitimate artist.”
- Hillary Brown, Paste
“Jack Davis: Drawing American Pop Culture – A Career Retrospective is a wonderful tribute to the prolific artist... An amazing lifetime of work.”
- The Christian Science Monitor

What we are trying to say here is, Good Effort, but please tell us that the best is yet to come. Personally, I would like a comprehensive collection of all Jack Davis comic book art, reproduced in crisp clean black and white, if only to preserve his beautiful line work. I sadly realize that there are probably copyright issues here, but nevertheless, Jack Davis needs a library of volumes, like the very well done collections of Complete Little Orphan Annie Volume 1 (Complete Little Orphan Annie) and Complete Chester Gould's Dick Tracy Volume 2 (v. 2). But, all that aside, I would certainly recommend this book to my friends. I mean, it's Jack Davis!
Oh, and a dust cover would have been really nice.
It was nice to see what else Jack was working on to pay the bills when he wasn't blowing my mind in the pages of Mad magazine or some of the other kid titles. Forgot he did the Teddy Roosevelt kid's book. Wow. Just amazingly talented.
As a side note, book arrived damaged. amazon is very inconsistent in the packaging of nice books like this. I had to return mine and will buy elsewhere.
