Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
I Tumbl-ed it instead
Mignola was talking about some great Wood compilation just a couple of days ago... he was saying it was really terrific.
Dudes!! Tommy, thanks for not forgettin' me. I am burnin' the midnight oil to get The Teen Ellis to you. Have everything scanned, just cleaning up and "coloring" (which is brutal for me...). Posting the splash page now.Love the Wood--don't know enough of his work.
Yes, I heard about the new Wood compilation from an e-mail I got from Bud Plant. Must have!
Wood did incredible, atypical work on the scifi pulps. Styled different than his comics. Characters more likely to have realistic proportions and tending toward almost architectural type of shorthand looking figures.I'll have to check on the new compilation.
Against the Grain. The Book you're talking about?Cannon by Wood and Ditko
No, the new one is called "Woodwork" - http://www.amazon.com/Woodwork-Wallace-Wood-1927-1981-Wally/dp/1613772920/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1358189246&sr=1-2&keywords=woodworkBut "Against the Grain" looks pretty cool.
