Happy Birthday, Wally Wood

Happy Birthday, Wally Wood
(June 17, 1927 – November 2, 1981)

Wood, Wally - SUPERDUPERMAN (page 1 original art), 1953
When the single page changed hands through Heritage Auctions in 2009, it sold for $43,318.75.
Would have been nice if the set had not been broken up.

Ahh, this touches me. Thanks for sharing it.

As an aside, years back, when Gaines used Russ Cochran to auction the entire load of EC original art, I dreaded the way the complete stories were bound to travel -- broken apart like this.

I haven't spent a lot of my life wishing to be rich. But that time, when those things were being auctioned, is one.

I like how on 'To Tell the Truth' Gaines said that MAD, which carries no ads, makes a profit through "volume." "Volume" of what was not specified.
