There are a lot of stories about Wally Wood. I remember hearing one story in particular. It was when Wood had received a fan letter saying that his work was past it and not up to scratch and that his assistants handled all the work, not him – in other words, he was washed up. Wood saw this as a challenge and produced, what is too me, his greatest work ‘To Kill A God’ .
This story was told to me when I worked at Fox Animation Studios by Jun Lofamia. Jun brought in the strip in question to show me…and I blew it up on the copier on paper 24×36 and i’m not kidding you. The attention to detail is amazing and some of it gets quite lost ‘regular’ size.
Below is the first page of the strip. if you can…search it out. Well worth the time looking.
