Going on Hiatus

HOORAY FOR WALLY WOOD will be going on hiatus for the foreseeable future. Thanks for everyone's support over these past few years. The site will remain up and comments will still be accepted but there will be no new posts going forward. I'm leaving that open to change however so the site is not closed...just taking a long break.

To get your regular Wood fix, may I recommend several popular interactive Facebook pages overseen by the Wood Estate:

Nick Cuti's Moonie and the Spider Queen

Here's a link to a recent review of one of former Woodworker Nicola Cuti's MOONIE novels, all available on Amazon. 


From Amazon:
Lusty little Moonie can live in the hostile environment of Outer Space wearing little more than a smile. She hates wearing clothes and does so only for modesty's sake. Her survival ability is worth billions. When Moonie's scooter-meteor crashes into the starship, the Big Bang, Perry and Torry entice the sexy Starbabe to stay while they secretly plan to sell her to the big business corporations on Earth. But Moonie receives a telepathic call for help from her sister Starbabes and she is off to the planet, Vulva-5. Perry and Torry are in pursuit and their chase takes them through a world of giant thinking spiders, deadly soldiers, reducing machines, tanks of luscious naked maidens in cryogenic sleep and the deadly, beautiful Spider Queen, Phobia. This is a comic novel of fun and surprises but definitely not for the entire family. Adults only! This is a NEWLY REVISED EDITION--bolder and sexier.

Wood himself was a fan of Moonie (aka Moonchild) and once drew her for Nick. He is said to have told Nick he should develop the character and, over more than 40 years now, he has!

R.I.P-Dan Adkins

J. David Spurlock of the Wood Estate is reporting the passing last week of artist Dan Adkins. I have always felt that Adkins was the most symbiotic of Wood's collaborators. Their work together in the sixties produced, amongst other things,  T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS, TOTAL WAR and WITZEND. Dan went on to a prolific career as an illustrator himself with much good work at Marvel in the sixties and a long career as an inker in the seventies and beyond. Here are some of my favorite pieces by Dan Adkins, solo.

Sky Masters Halloween Costume

As posted by Kurt Busiek on Facebook. Apparently there was what seems to be an official Halloween costume of Jack Kirby and Wally Wood's SKY MASTERS OF THE SPACE FORCE, most likely for the Halloween of 1959!

Dynamo on the Moon

Here we see three looks at this classic T.H.U.N.D.E.R. image. First, the original art, above, which Dan Adkins noted in COMOC BOOK ARTIST that he had done everything but ink the Dynamo figure.

Then, the published version above from the first issue of DYNAMO in '66. Then finally, below, an all-Adkins version in the form of a re-creation down, I believe, sometime in the 1990's.

A nice little forum write-up on Wood (cribbed from Wikipedia) complete with an official estate link. Only...who the heck is THAT guy? Not Wood, that's for sure.

This is who!
