Mort Drucker, the beloved artist known for his work at MAD magazine, has died at 91. Drucker died at his home in New York on Thursday, his daughter, Laurie Bachner, confirmed. She said he was experiencing breathing problems and difficulty walking but was not tested for COVID-19. After joining MAD in 1956, Drucker's hilarious caricatures satirizing pop culture soon became iconic, and he illustrated more than half of the magazine's movie parodies from the early 1960s through 2008. "The World has lost a not just an extraordinary talent but a shining example of kindness, humility and humor," the National Cartoonists Society said in a statement.
