Wallace Wood draws Buck Rogers style heroes battle Winged aliens

"Winged Death on Venus" was drawn by Wallace Wood during his peak years as a science-fiction comic book artist. But unlike his more famous stories for EC Comics, this tale is much more of an old-fashioned-style space opera, complete with the full assortment of monsters, aliens, beautiful women, rocket ships and ray-guns. The winged men in particular are a love poem to Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon of the late 1930's.

Hi, Wallace Wood has long been a favourite of mine. Thanks for posting these scans. I particularly like the last page.

Thanks, Sherm!

I'd barbecue my glaucomaed granny's guide dog to see more rare Wallace Wood. I already robbed Phil's Liquor Market on Compton Ave to buy Against the Grain.

Any other Sherm fans who love Wally Wood, google up the tax-deductible Wallace Wood Scholarship Fund for the School of Visual Arts.

Fantastic stuff. At his lowest ebb, Wood was just about the greatest. It grinds me that life gave him such a sore deal, but at least his work will last.
