Book Description

15 Jan 2013
Wally Wood is one of the most celebrated comic artists of all time. His legendary career runs from the glory days of EC Comics extraordinary line of science fiction titles to the brilliantly subversive Mad Comics (and, later, Magazine). He produced extraordinary illustrations for magazines like Galaxy after EC folded, and worked on the some of the most fondly remembered stories published by Marvel Comics in the mid 1960s. He also co-created the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents and was a pioneer in self-publishing. This massive tome is the American edition of a museum catalogue that accompanied a gigantic career retrospective on display in De Palma Spain in 2010, the largest such exhibit ever devoted to this incredible artist. Presented simultaneously in two languages, English and Spanish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 10 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A superb volume covering a wide range of Wallace Wood's work throughout his career. For me, the Tower section was superb as was the EC / Warren sections but the whole book is an essential book for any comic fan. The book also includes a number of original art pages (the complete story, not just a single page).

The only minor issue is that the text is in English and Spanish (not that is this is surprising - many art books use a similar approach with English / French / German etc) but it does mean the text is shorter than I first realized.

Certain the best volume I have ever bought on any of the EC comic artists.

Extremely well produced book, nicely illustrated from various sources, covering most aspects of Wood's career. How could something like this be produced as an e-book?

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful tribute 17 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
At last a lavish well printed tribute to Wally Wood. His stunning understanding form in stark black and white is simply breath-taking. He is an artist whose understanding of light and shadow produces so many memorable comic book panels. This is high art in a sequential form - every bit as valid as Michelangelo or Rembrandt. A beautifully produced book with great production values. Long overdue (even though this one was delivered fast ;) ) - I think he was the film-noir genius of comics. An incredible draughtsman who seemed to use light itself as his brush. Thank you Wally - you left an amazing legacy for us all to enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book 30 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Just received this last night, and maybe I should have given i 5 stars, but I had hoped some of the samples been given more space. However I'm very pleased to see Wood's Vampirella classic 'To kill a good' in such a big format. All in all a terrific book.
