Hooray for Horror-Wood

I don't think enough people, even Wallace Wood fans, say enough about his ability to letter. The title lettering from these three early MAD features showcase how exciting his display lettering could be. I've enlarged the titles so you can get a better look at his intricate design work.

The artwork in the stories is great, too. His work with gray tones, specifically his Craftint work (originals shown with the missile pages from MAD #47) was very skillful, and gave his work an added depth.
