    Wally Wood Witzend #12 "Lunar Tunes (Bucky Ruckus)" Story Page 11 Original Art (Wonderful Publ. Co., 1981-82). A late-in-life composition finds Wood in an experimental phase. Though weakened by illness and professional frustrations, the master bristled anew with humorous and provocative ideas. This combination of original drawings with photo-montage effects represents a takeoff on his friend Jack Kirby's cosmic-collage blowouts of the 1960s' Fantastic Four books. Wood had long since deeded his comics-as-art publication, Witzend, to Bill Pearson, but Wood reserved the right to contribute. The elfin character is Bucky Ruckus, a Buck Rogers spoof whom Wood had introduced almost a generation earlier in Witzend. (Note the wording of the sign at lower left.) An accompanying reproduction contains Pearson's original hand-lettering. Ink and collage effects over graphite on Bristol board and other hand-cut clip-file stock. Image area, 13" x 16.5". Moderate toning and spot-staining. Excellent condition.
