Thomas Moudry:

Mou on the Verge

The memorable Wally Wood, collected! Wayout reprints some of Wood’s most breath-taking work for the digest magazine, Galaxy, while the Lunar Tunes collects Wood’s work on the sci-fi humor strip of the same name.

 

Wayout (Wallace Wood’s…)

This gorgeous art book reprints some of the legendary Wally Wood’s most breath-taking science fiction and fantasy artwork for the digest magazine, Galaxy.

In these gorgeous black and white illustrations, Wood takes fans to fantastic worlds populated by brave adventurers, brilliant scientists, beautiful women (This is Wally Wood, after all!), strange aliens, and rampaging robots.

There is no doubt that Wood was a master draftsman, and this oversized paperback is showcase for some of the artist’s best, and little seen, work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lunar Tunes

Fondly remembered for his horror, sci-fi, and humor work on E.C. titles such as Tales from the Crypt, Weird Science, and Mad, as well as his super-hero work on T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents and All-Star Comics, artist extraordinaire Wally Wood was also a significant figure in the Underground Comix movement.

This black and white trade paperback collects all of Wally Wood’s Lunar Tunes—a humor strip that incorporates elements of science fiction and, well, Wood’s penchant for, um, naughtiness.

Here, spaceman Bucky and his pals Myron, Pip, Nudine, and Snorky journey through the cosmos and encounter such luminaries as John F. Kennedy, the Rolling Stones, the Playboy bunnies, and even Wood himself. There’s more than enough fun to go around in this groovy comic book album.
