Wallace Wood was born in 1927 and became one of the greatest artists and, arguably, the best inker in comic-book history. He drew several stories for MAD, including the famous parody “Superduperman,” as well as science fiction, crime, and horror stories for EC Comics. He drew the “adult” strips “Cannon,” Shattuck,” and “Sally Forth” for military magazines. He also contributed to the superhero genre, working for one year at Marvel on Daredevil, and creating T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents for Tower. In 1966, he founded witzend, a pioneering magazine of the underground comix movement. His work can be found in Came the Dawn and Other Stories (2012), Cannon (2014), The MAD Art of Wally Wood (2015), Spawn of Mars and Other Stories (2015), Wallace Wood Presents: Shattuck (2016), Best of witzend (2018), and Atom Bomb and Other Stories (2019), as well as the two-volume collection of critical essays, The Life and Legend of Wallace Wood (2016–2017). He died in 1981.
