Harvey Kurtzman’s Marley’s Ghost will see the posthumous expansion and completion of this legendary creator's adaptation of Charles Dickens's classic A Christmas Carol. Kurztman's ambitious concept for Marley's Ghost began in the 1950s—as an early "graphic novel"—but was never realized. Now, the talented trio of Shannon Wheeler, Gideon Kendall, and Josh O'Neill will adapt and expand upon Kurtzman's extensive breakdowns and notes to make his long-lost vision a reality. Harvey Kurtzman (1924-1993) was the creator of MAD, Playboy's Little Annie Fanny, and TRUMP magazine. The comic industry's Harvey Awards are named in his honor. Shannon Wheeler is the Eisner Award-winning creator of the comic Too Much Coffee Man and a contributor to The New Yorker. Gideon Kendall is an artist, illustrator and animation designer whose clients include Disney, Cartoon Network, and The New York Times. Josh O'Neil is an Eisner and Harvey Award-winning writer and editor (Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream).
“As a stylist, as an illustrator, as an innovator of layout, as a storyteller, he made everything that came before inadequate—and everything after transformative." —Anthony Bourdain
“Kurtzman was a God!” —Terry Gilliam
