About the Author
Wallace Allan Wood (1927-1981) rebooted Marvel's Daredevil, designing the iconic costume that recently appeared on the smash hit Netflix series. He was one of the best and funniest cartoonists of the earliest iteration of Mad magazine and, thanks to his work on the EC Comics line, he is also widely considered one of America's greatest science-fiction cartoonists. With his magazine anthology witzend, he helped pioneer underground/independent comics publishing.
Gary Groth is the co-founder of The Comics Journal and Fantagraphics Books. He lives in Seattle.
[Wood's] critique of the self-proud post-war American public reached the edge of McCarthy Era acceptability and sometimes went way beyond. [H]is art is brilliant. If anyone still thinks that comics were never more than time-wasters for escapist children, they will learn better here. --Paul Buhle"
