One of Woody's best-remembered WITZEND features is ANIMAN, a fairly traditional comics adventure based on a character Wood had created in his youth. You can see it here:

Fantasy Illustrated 7 Revisted

Back in February, we ran this in black and white. Since many old fanzines featured black and white covers, it never occurred to me that this one might have actually been in color. So imagine my surprise when I saw this color version.

Spotted this tribute to Wood at DEVIANT ART, apparently by one Mario-Friere.

More Reese

One can find some Wood influence (and I believe even some Dan Adkins influence in the skies) in this sci-fi illustration by Wood protege Ralph Reese but it's also a good look at his own, unique style.

The Werewolf Legend

The cool but too infrequently updated BLACK N WHITE AND RED ALL OVER site posts the original art pages to one of Woody's earliest EC strips, done in collaboration with his then partner, Harry Harrison and veteran sci-fi and comics writer Gardner Fox.

Adkins TBG Cover

Here we see a nifty, almost Doug Wildey-like, early TBG cover from sometime Wood cohort, Dandy Dan Adkins.

Once Again Sally From FOO

Here's a lovely, non-personalized SALLY FORTH sketch from the batch Woody did (with Paul Kirchner) for his Friends Of Odkin fan club in the late seventies. Foo. Click it. This one embiggens real well!

Wood by Reese

Here's a portrait of Wally Wood within a portrait of Ralph Reese BY Ralph Reese, as seen in its entirety over at the ever-informative Bhob Stewart's POTRZEBIE site at the link below. Seriously, if you're stopping by here on any kind of regular basis, you should be stopping by there, too!

20,000 Leaks

Over at Pappy's place, you can find Woody's PANIC parody of Disney's 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA, written by Jack Mendelsohn who is also known for co-writing a later submarine story--YELLOW SUBMARINE.

Comic Strip Christmas

Ron Sutton comes through again with an amazing scan of this MAD original art. Embiggen for hours of fun!

22 Panels Arm Art

No less than three different folks linked me to this perhaps overzealous Wood fan in recent days. Check him out!

The Nickel Library

THE NICKEL LIBRARY was a fun idea that was done under somewhat shady circumstances and never got anywhere near its planned 500 issues. Basically, each one is one page, costing a nickel, highlighting a cool, rare comics-related image. The goal was to have 500 which one could then collect and store in a binder. Wood appeared several times including with this highly detailed piece probably from or intended originally for one of the digests.

Here are a couple of little-seen shots of Wally Wood from Phil Seuling's 1970 Comic Art seen in Marty Greim's COMIC CRUSADER fanzine from not long afterwards.
