Wood Chips 27: Voice of Wally Wood
Here is Matthew Hawes' 2006 video of The Voices of Marvel (1965). Scripting and delivery fell short, but Hawes gave it new life in a slick video production with a good selection of images nicely timed.
To read the entire "Flight into Fear" story (from Tower of Shadows #5), go to Pete Doree's Bronze Age. The splash was reworked for the cover of The Marvel Art of Wally Wood (Thumbtack Books, 1982), where it seems to lose some of its drama without the barred window and the monster mask. The original splash hinted that Wood was imprisoned at his drawing table.
"Of Swords and Sorcery" was published in Tower of Shadows #7 (September 1970). In a 1971 letter to me, Wood called this story "the Big One" and added, "I personally thought a little epic I did called "Of Swords and Sorcery" for Marvel was the best thing I've done in years." Trolkin, who "made the mistake of laughing at a wizard," is one of Wood's more imaginative character creations, so it's surprising he was given little dialogue. To read the entire story, go to Groovy Kind.
