- Full Description
Introducing a new format within the Artist's Edition brand: the Artisan Edition! Softcover format, 8 x 12 inches, but still collecting complete stories that are all painstakingly scanned in full color from the original black & white art. If you have been holding off exploring the wonderful world of Artist's Editions, this is the perfect place to begin!
Part one offers 11 complete science-fiction stories, from "There Will Come Soft Rains" and "Mars is Heaven" by Ray Bradbury to "My World" by Wood himself. Previously unpublished entries include "Spawn of Venus" done for the never-published EC 3D book, and first published by Wood in his own Witzend #6.
Part two presents "Came the Dawn" from Shock Suspenstories #9, and then five complete stories from Frontline Combat and Two-Fisted Tales, two written by Wally himself and the others all by Harvey Kurtzman.
Part three is a gallery of 14 original covers, half from the sci-fi titles, the others from the previously mentioned war titles, plus three from Shock Suspenstories. Unbelievably great work, this is perfect for anyone who can't quite pull the trigger on the $150 Artist Editions...it's not the size of the original artwork, but still larger than in the comics. So great!
Wood was a perfectionist and it shows here. He would make change after change in the art, often cutting out pieces and pasting in new drawings. Text changes are also frequent. Includes a special preliminary pencil drawing of the "Spawn of Mars" splash page.
