All-new Wood tribute cover! Highly Recommended. Edited by Jon B. Cooke. With a bonus-size 100 pages, we have a full biography of Wallace Wood, while a second piece by publisher David Spurlock (Vanguard) examines his influence and legacy. A heartfelt look at Woody's career, as well as a gallery of little-seen work. Plus: an extended interview with 1970s Wood assistant Ralph Reese, who moved on to Marvel's horror comics, National Lampoon, underground comix and Valiant. And, a long chat with Hilary Barta, from Marvel inker to Plastic Man, “stupid” Image Comics, America's Best collaborations with Alan Moore, and current work for Plankton Comics.

With a bonus-size 100 pages, we have a full biography of Wallace Wood, while a second piece by publisher David Spurlock (Vanguard) examines his influence and legacy. A heartfelt look at Woody's career, as well as a gallery of little-seen work. Plus: an extended interview with 1970s Wood assistant Ralph Reese, who moved on to Marvel's horror comics, National Lampoon, underground comix and Valiant. And, a long chat with Hilary Barta, from Marvel inker to Plastic Man, “stupid” Image Comics, America's Best collaborations with Alan Moore, and current work for Plankton Comics.

And, of course, CBC includes its usual informative features, including the humor of Hembeck, a great Steve Ditko Superman piece (shown here), and more. Cover by Hilary Barta. The Wood article is flanked by dozens of wonderful cover reproductions, and the second Wood feature has quite a number of rare early pieces, pencils and studies perhaps never before collected (one of these is also shown here)! Edited by Jon B. Cooke.

Cover Wood homage by Barta. Some fine work of his also spans his interview, one of the pieces (the EC looking sci-fi image) is shown here. The "Tomb Zero" piece we've included is by Ralph Reese, who also worked with Wood on The Misfits, Heroes, Inc. at Tops, a "Warmonger of Mars" splash from the aborted Warren magazine, The POW Show.

Profusely illustrated. CGC always delivers with interesting new interviews, articles and special features. The best magazine about vintage comics since Alter Ego, but with very different coverage and features that always have a lot to offer. I'm always eager to get this home and relax with a pleasurable jaunt into the inner workings of comics.
