Gold metallic-ink slipcase with variant art; 16 bonus pages with unpublished sketches from his time in the service and early in his career. The greatest collection ever of Wally Wood war comics! Nearly 200 pages spanning the Hall of Fame creator's career, most never before collected, from titles like Avon's Captain Savage and U.S. Paratroops, DC's All American Men of War, Charlton's War & Attack and D-Day, Harvey's Warfront, Fight The Enemy, Total War /em> and Blazing Combat. Plus two full-length Steve Ditko & Wood adult-themed Cannon stories, commentary by J. David Spurlock, foreword by GI Joe and The 'Nam writer Larry Hama, and an essay on Wood's EC war comics by Tommy Burns.

This is an outstanding collection, showing Wood at his peak, from his EC work to the early 1970s. His assistants that also provided parts of some of these stories include the fine artists Russ Jones, Dan Adkins, Maurice Whitman, Sid Check and, of course, Steve Ditko. Nice thick collection of great work and insightful commentary.

Also includes the great Chennault Flying Tigers and Concord prints that Wood himself produced and sold at the same time as he created his pro-zine witzend--and a Wood-drawn original ad for that.

From the original art, we are treated to "The Battle of Britain" and "ME-262! splash pages and two more story pages.
