From the publisher:

Limited to 1000 copies, the hardcover edition of Bhob Stewart's long-awaited AGAINST THE GRAIN: MAD ARTIST WALLACE WOOD includes 16 full-color pages not found in the softcover edition. It's the most comprehensive book ever produced on the career of one of science-fiction and comics' finest artists! For his Mad magazine work alone, many have long regarded Wallace Wood as the world's greatest cartoonist, and this remarkable memoir of life at the Wood Studio includes a biographical portrait, tracing Woody's life while exploring the humorous spirit, dark detours and psychological twists of this gifted maverick who often went against the grain! Many artists and writers who knew Wood personally have also contributed articles and essays, making this book a huge compendium of imaginative art, insights and critical commentary! From childhood drawings and ambitious teenage samples to an endless parade of pages for a variety of publishers--Avon, EC, Fox, Marvel, Warren, and! more--plus illustrations for Galaxy Science Fiction, this is the most stunning display of Wood art ever assembled! Bill Pearson, executor of the Wood Estate, has made available rare drawings directly from Wood's own files, while noted art collector Roger Hill provides a wealth of obscure, previously unpublished Wood drawings and paintings. Stand by to blast off! Spa fon!
