Wally Wood is one of the best comic book artists that ever lived. The more I study his work, the more admiration I have for his talent.
Wood is best known for his stories in EC's Weird Fantasy and Weird Science Fiction, but he was prolific and drew for other comic book publishers, too. Last year Vangaurd published Wood's non-EC science fiction work, Strange Worlds of Science Fiction (the book is out of print, but you can get copies for $57 and up on Amazon). Today, Vanguard released Eerie Tales of Crime & Horror: The Complete Non-EC 1950s Crime & Horror Comics of Wally Wood. This 200-page volume is a great deal at $23.
Vanguard Wally Wood Classics series follows the hit Strange Worlds of Science Fiction with Eerie Tales of Crime & Horror. From EC Comics to Witzend, Sally Forth, MAD, Daredevil, Mars Attacks, Cannon, T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, and more, this Eisner Award Hall of Fame Talent is one of the most noted comic book creators ever. This volume of Vanguard's Wally Wood Classics collects for the first time ever, the complete non-EC 1950's crime and horror comics of Wallace Wood. Sensationalistic stories from vintage comics: Eerie, Atomic Spy Cases, Dark Mysteries, Crime Smashers, Witchcraft, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Mask of Fu Manchu.

Here’s a fun fact about Cincy Comicon. It’s not in Cincinnati. It’s not even in Ohio! It’s in Covington, KY. But Cincinnati is close. In fact, I walked from my hotel over the John A.

I’ve never really felt the need to purchase a smartwatch because a lot of them aren’t very functional, but at just shy of $30, the Martian Notifier Smartwatch was worth checking out.
