Description - The Life And Legend Of Wallace Wood Volume 2 by Wallace Wood

Essays on the life and career of one of the greatest comic book creators: the maddest artist in Mad magazine, the man behind Marvel's Daredevil, and self-publishing pioneer.
Bursting with a cornucopia of gorgeous artwork and photos, this volume features a fascinating Rashomonlike collection of vivid remembrances by Wood's friends, colleagues, assistants, and loved ones. Even as they explore the playful spirit and psychological twists of this complicated maverick of American pop culture, they frankly discuss his struggles with censorship and alcoholism and his slide into the realm of pornography. Carefully compiled over more than three decades by Wood assistant Bhob Stewart, The Life and Legend of Wallace Wood Volume 2 completes this remarkably revealing and intimate portrait of a legendary comics creator. Contributors include Larry Hama, John Workman, Trina Robbins, Paul Krassner, Flo Steinberg, Tom Sutton, Bill Pearson, Tatjana Wood, and Paul Levitz. A special tribute gallery includes artwork by Robert Crumb, Dan Clowes, Michael T. Gilbert, Al Feldstein, Dave Sim, Michael Cho, Drew Friedman, and Marie Severin.
Full-color illustrations throughout.
