Encounter by Wood with Pat Boyette

THE COSMIC BOOK was a one-off independent comic put out by artist Pat Boyette during the eighties boom. It came out 5 years after Woody's death but was advertised as containing his final work. What we get is a two page derivative sci-fi piece that looks surprisingly good for late Wood art. Based on a later publication without Boyette's wonderful painted colors, one sees that it really wasn't particularly impressive.

Thanks to Pat's work on those two pages, though, Wally Wood, one of THE sci-fi masters of the 2oth century, gets one last hurrah.
