More than a few comic book aficionados rank Wally Wood as the greatest cartoonist of all time (he's in my top five, along with Carl Barks, Jack Kirby, Robert Crumb, and Daniel Clowes). This Fantagraphics anthology of Wood's Cannon is being widely praised in advance of its release. Love and Rockets' co-creator Gilbert Hernandez says, "Cannon is like a punch in the face with a cement-filled giant salami." There's no finer testimonial than that.
Cannon by the legendary Wallace Wood (Mad, EC Comics, Daredevil)! Cannon appeared every week for two and a half years in Overseas Weekly, a newspaper distributed exclusively to U.S. Military bases around the world. Uncensored by commercial editorial restrictions, Wood pulled out all the stops — producing a thrilling and salacious Cold War spy serial run amok with brutal violence and titillating sex — all in an effort to boost morale and support our troops!
Meet John Cannon, the perfect agent and America's exploitative answer to James Bond. Initially brainwashed by the terrifying, voluptuous, and always half naked Madame Toy to be "the perfect assassin" for the Red forces, Cannon was eventually rescued and brainwashed (again) by the CIA until he had no emotions whatsoever. Under the employ of our government’s Central Intelligence Agency, Cannon experiences action like no other agent! Undercover and under the covers, Cannon endures nude torture by beautiful women, explosive gunplay, naked catfights, bone-crunching plastic surgery, nudity, Hitler, nihilistic lovemaking, Weasel the spy, naked women, death from above, and more naked women! Take that, 007!
