Wood had done a lot of work for Warren Publsihing over the years even going so far as to be photographed and inserted into Warren's photo adaptation of the Grade Z monster film, THE HORROR OF PARTY BEACH early on. In later years, however, that relationship became strained as Wood had supposedly been promised his own sci-fi mag (WARP) only to have the company publish the dreadful and pointlessly dirty 1984 in its stead. In that mag, Bill Dubay once again rewrote a Woody story, this time making a nice fantasy story (the original of which Wood would self-publish in his WOODWORK GAZETTE) into a smarmy, sophomoric joke. Nonetheless, Warren's EERIE paid tribute to the artist on his passing with a full issue of reprints that included this obituary. Some nice quotes and stories here from Wood's contemporaries and co-workers.
