Vanguard's Wally Wood Classics series follows the best-selling Strange Worlds and Eerie Crime & Horror with an all-new collection of Golden Age Wood Romance--but as only Wood would picture it! There's crime here, and bad girls, and the amazing-looking women that made Wood a favorite as soon as he joined EC. He did these wild stories for Avon, Fox, and other early 1950s publishers.
These rare and valuable collectors-item stories have NEVER appeared in any book. They are often so obscure that long-time fans (like myself) are still out looking for them. And then there is the wonderful Avon material, which now is very sought after. Okay, this is romance and that's not everyone's cup of tea--but on the other hand, it's Wood doing it. Can't get much better than that.
And some of this is quite early in his career and it's not the sophisticated, polished Wood we know from EC's sci-fi titles. But the raw talent is still there and, just like his earliest work for EC, there is a power and an in-your-face aspect here that is pure Wood. He couldn't draw a bland-looking girl if he tried. And the stories...they're sometimes so bad they are just plain great fun.
This massive collection costs less than a single issue of the original comics!
