    Wally Wood - Original Art for The Spirit Sunday Supplement, page 1 (Will Eisner Productions, 1952). After a legendary stint for EC Comics and Mad, but before his riotous return to comics in the early 1960s, Wally Wood and Jules Feiffer collaborated for a short run on Will Eisner's Spirit Sunday supplement, resulting in some of the best work of Wood's career. Brought on board to inject much-needed life into the fading strip, Wood and Feiffer rocketed the Spirit into outer space, where Wood's mastery of sc-fi comics could be used to its fullest advantage. This page, the beautifully rendered splash for "Mission... the Moon," measures approximately 14.5" x 20.75" on Craftint board, and is in very good condition. The paste-ups that once graced the top of the page are missing, but this does not affect the central image in any way. This is a fine example of Wood's work from perhaps his most mature and creative period.
