Let's We Forget Dept.

Wally Wood was such an amazing artist.

He could take any assignment and make it work. Imagine trying to fit all the things into one page that he has here, perfectly rendered in grey tones — and funny to boot!

This page is from around 1960, yet so many of Sy Reit's choices are still appropriate 50 some years later ('specially those first two on the top left). It's funny that the time capsule is the shape of a 'gel-cap', new to that time, and it's funny with all the stuff going on around the capsule, including Alfred E. Neuman's skull and bones.

Wot an amazing artist!!
