WORLD OF WOOD COVER GALLERY...
Back in 1986, I bought WORLD Of WOOD #s 2-4. It
was quite a few years afterwards (mid-'90s, maybe later) that
I managed to track down the first issue, but to my surprise, #s 5
& 6 were also listed in the back issue catalogue I was ordering #1
from. (Surprise, because it was originally intended to be a four ish
series.) On a whim, I ordered the fifth issue, which, unlike the
previous ones, was in black and white, and published a
whopping three years after its predecessors.
I wish now I'd got #6 - but, here's the thing. Whenever
I see this series mentioned anywhere, it's always described as
having only five issues, so was #6 a misprint in the catalogue, or
was it a limited print run that most people just don't know about?
If you know the answer, let me know, will you? I hate it when
a mystery remains unsolved. Even better, if it really exists
and you've got it, contact me if you want to sell it.
In the meantime, enjoy Crivens' brief cover gallery of this
interesting micro-series on one of the all-time greats of comic-
book art - the one and only, legendary WALLY WOOD!
