Retro Sci-Fi Pulp Covers by Wally Wood

April 20, 2018

Today feels like a good day to revisit the work of Wally Wood, king of retro sci-fi pulp comic illustrations.

Wally Wood was an American comic book writer, artist and independent publisher, best known for his work on EC Comics's Mad and Marvel's Daredevil. He was one of Mad's founding cartoonists in 1952. Although much of his early professional artwork is signed Wallace Wood, he became known as Wally Wood, a name he claimed to dislike. Within the comics community, he was also known as Woody, a name he sometimes used as a signature.
