    Wally Wood - Three Dimensional EC Classics Complete 8 page Story "V-Vampires" Original Art (EC, 1954). For EC's foray into the brief 3-D fad, four classic stories -- one each from Mad, Weird Science, Frontline Combat, and Crime SuspenStories -- were redrawn in this one-shot, published in the Spring of 1954. Here is Wally Wood's retelling of his Mad #3 blood-sucking spoof, "V-Vampires." The art is rendered on Crafttint paper and four pieces of Acetate, each piece having art and consecutively numbered pages. The five pieces were then stapled together, with stunning results. The 3D effect is clearly evident and deep - - you can step right into each scene! The art is vibrant and takes on a life of its own; as you turn the pages, you have one incredible scene after another. And then there’s the “Babe” -- a Woody trademark. Each page features a great, leggy, voluptuous female with a body "to kill for". This very unusual and rare item comes from what most fans and comic art experts alike consider Wood’s peak period, and this story is among his most memorable. Aside from some normal aging of the acetate and some very minor paint loss, all items are in Excellent condition.
