43. Fliks: Daily Strip Proposal, Pt. 3 (1959-1960?, Unpublished)

"Feiffer always talks about the fact that his drawings have gotten smaller and his text has gotten bigger. He, in fact, became a Hollywood writer; he writes plays and books. I find that the written word is very difficult. I work easily with pictures and visuals. I find that writing does not come easily to me."

-Harvey Kurtzman, The Comics Journal, 1981


"In the end I find I have to write, because in a comic strip you can't really separate the pictures from the words. You can do a wordless comic strip, but you can get a lot more mileage if you put words into it."
-Harvey Kurtzman, The Comics Journal, 1982
