Monday cartoon Day.
Continuing my Monday look at cartoon journalism.
Not long after doing the piece for The TV Guide Kurtzman did a couple of similar job for Esquire magazine. For the first one he went to the set of a James Cagney movie in Ireland. The style of this article is all Kurtzman' own. No one did these kind of reports before or after him. In hi later years on Little Annie Fanny he was most proud of his achievements in the use of color. Here we see him excel in that area for the first time. Esquire was a huge magazine, so I have split the scans in two. The first page was done in green and black and white. To make this remarkable piece of art more readable I have reversed the colors on that page. The original version is visible at the start of this piece.
