Inbetweens: Wally Wood, the Michelangelo of Science Fiction Comics

Wally Wood Weird Science Fantasy

In 1950, Wally Wood convinced EC publisher William Gaines to create science fiction comic books. In Weird Science and Weird Fantasy (later combined into Weird Science Fantasy) Wood knocked the ball out of the park by pencilling and inking spectacular images that defined the way science fiction looked during the fifties.

During the 1970s, Wood’s health began to decline. He suffered from chronic headaches, alcoholism, kidney failure and strokes. The health problems led him to commit suicide in 1981. He left behind a legacy that will never be forgotten.

Here is a sampling of Wood’s work from around the net…

Wally had a tension in him, an intensity that he locked away in an internal steam boiler. I think it ate away his insides, and the work really used him up. I think he delivered some of the finest work that was ever drawn, and I think it’s to his credit that he put so much intensity into his work at great sacrifice to himself. –Harvey Kurtzman
