Description

I've always loved Wood's art, and regretted not collecting it deeply...but who can afford to collect all the artists one loves? I LOVE everything about this-- firstly, from the peak Wood period...but I also love the handcrafted feel , the smudges, the EC stock, and of course the classic Wood science fiction elements...this was to have been published in the 3rd 3D comic, inked on another sheet, of course...making this an interesting and rare EC relic.

J'ai toujours aimé l'art de Wood et regretté de ne pas l'avoir collectionné profondément ... mais qui peut se permettre de collectionner tous les artistes que l'on aime? J'adore tout dans ce domaine - premièrement, à partir de la période de pointe Wood ... mais j'aime aussi l'aspect artisanal, les traces, le stock de la CE et, bien sûr, les éléments classiques de science-fiction Wood ... cela devait être publié dans la 3ème bande dessinée 3D, encrée sur une autre feuille, bien sûr ... ce qui en fait une relique intéressante et rare de la EC Comics.

About Wally Wood

Wallace Allan Wood (June 17, 1927 – November 2, 1981) was an American comic book writer, artist and independent publisher, best known for his work on EC Comics's Mad and Marvel's Daredevil. He was one of Mad's founding cartoonists in 1952. Although much of his early professional artwork is signed Wallace Wood, he became known as Wally Wood, a name he claimed to dislike. Within the comics community, he was also known as Woody, a name he sometimes used as a signature. In addition to Wood's hundreds of comic book pages, he illustrated for books and magazines while also working in a variety of other areas – advertising; packaging and product illustrations; gag cartoons; record album covers; posters; syndicated comic strips; and trading cards, including work on Topps' landmark Mars Attacks set. EC publisher William Gaines once stated, "Wally may have been our most troubled artist... I'm not suggesting any connection, but he may have been our most brilliant".
