49. Help! #12: Cover Photo (Sep 1961)

"I own a piece of Help! I don't think I'd ever go into editing a magazine unless I owned a piece. I owned a piece of Trump - a very small piece, a token piece - but it was a very important token to me. A cartoonist very rarely owns anything he does."

-Harvey Kurtzman, Rogue Magazine, Dec 1965

"Because of Kurtzman's example, cartoonists are far less likely to sign their great ideas away."
-R. Fiore, The Comics Journal, 2006
