WALLY'S WORLD HC
by Steve Starger & J. David Spurlock
Wally's World opens Halloween night, 1981, in a seedy world of pornographers and drug addicts, with a mysterious death by .44 magnum gunshot on the outskirts of Hollywood... This is no mystery club thriller but the true, dramatic, gut-wrenching illustrated biography of legendary cartoonist-illustrator Wallace Wood. But his death, in semi-squalid surroundings and the wretched state of his body belie the glory that came before. Within the world of pop-art, Wood was revered as a rebel genius who inspired a generation, including "underground" cartoonists Robert Crumb, Bill Griffith, and Art Spiegelman. Wood rose to the pinnacle of pop-culture stardom as one of America's top humorists, and MAD Magazine's first star artist. Wood was also sought out to collaborate with pop-art maestro Peter Max; animated filmmaker Ralph Bakshi; Marvel comics creators Stan Lee and Jack Kirby; and Pulitzer Prize-winner Jules Feiffer, among others. Journalist Steve Starger and historian J. David Spurlock tell a concise but sweeping tale of Wood's life and times, supply critical examination of Wood's work, publish never-before-seen Wood drawings and photos, and offer a brisk and colorful history of the comic book industry and the American century from the Depression through the early 1980s. Introduction by Peter Max! Also available as a Deluxe slipcased hardcover with a 16-page bonus portfolio section.
