Regge’s Comics Stories ep. 9 - Terry Gilliam on Harvey Kurtzman

January 30, 2019

Hey folks! In this episode of Reggie's Comics Stories, I read an essay written by Terry Gilliam, alumnus of Monty Python's Flying Circus, about comics and humor legend Harvey Kurtzman, whom he worked for at Help! magazine during the 1960s! It originally appeared in the UK newspaper The Telegraph on July 10, 2009. Since this episode is a little short, I included an excerpt of an interview between Gilliam and VICE magazine from around the same time...in which he reiterates a lot of the same stuff. I hope you enjoy this look at how comics creators' influence can ripple out to influence some amazing people!
