      This book opens with Wallace Wood blowing his brains out with a .44 magnum in a rundown apartment house in Van Nuys, California. The year is 1981 and Wood is 54 years old, drunk, drawing porno cartoons for a living, and facing kidney failure. So even if you come to this biography knowing only Wood's great work for EC Comics, Mad Magazine, and his science fiction illustration, you will not be under the impression that what you are about to read is particularly upbeat.As a biography, Wally's World [...]

      Had no idea who this amazing artist was until Carrie's grandfather lent this book to me. He was friends with Wally Wood in elementary school through high school. The book was written pretty poorly, it was more like a marching through facts, and less like a narrative. The reason I give it 2 stars is because of the connection I made through it with Carrie's grandfather mostly. That and some of the art reproductions were nice.

      A very well done biography fully illustrated throughout. I’m not left with any questions about Wally’s life or expansive career. If only the other bios, like the recent Jack Kirby, were even close to being this well investigated and researched. Needless to say, a rather depressing read
