Wally Wood Artist EditionWally Wood’s EC Stories: Artist’s Edition HC
Wally Wood (a & c)

The third IDWArtist’s Edition (Following Dave Steven’s Rocketeer and Walter Simonson’s Thor) focuses on one of the all time greatest comic book artists, and at the absolute peak of his creative powers: Wally Wood. EC Comics was quite likely the finest comics line ever produced, and Wally Wood was one of their mainstays who set an incredibly high artistic standard. This volume will contain a wonderful selection of stories in original art form by Wood, including: MY WORLD, CAME THE DAWN, MARS IS HEAVEN, HE WALKED AMONG US, and more. Additionally, there will be a fantastic cover gallery section by Wood. If you’ve never seen Wood original art, you’ve never seen Wally Wood!

NOTE: Artist’s Editions are printed the same size as the original art. The art from this book was drawn in the 1950s, at a time when original art was produced “TWICE UP” (meaning twice printed size), as opposed to today’s one and a half up (50% larger than printed size). So this Artist’s Edition will measure an INSANE 15” x 22!”
