Wally Wood was one of the best, the greatest comic book artists we ever had the opportunity to enjoy. I never knew a time his artwork was not top notch. He's a big part of the reason we have comic books to live out in our dreams.
Heroes, Inc. is one of my favorite high adventure comic books of Wally Wood. It was also the hardest comics to find as well. Along with T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, it really opened me up to the work of Wally Wood.

  1. Thank you mister ! Love Wallace Wood works.

  2. Hard to find? My comic shop had like 20 of these in the dollar bin. I'd say it is worth maybe 25 cents as the stories were not good.
