Meet John Cannon, the perfect agent and America’s exploitative answer to James Bond, whose adventures are drawn the legendary Wallace Wood (Mad, EC Comics, Daredevil)!Cannon appeared in Overseas Weekly, a newspaper distributed exclusively to U.S. Military bases around the world. Uncensored by commercial editorial restrictions, Wood pulled out all the stops ― producing a thrilling and salacious Cold War spy serial run amok with brutal violence and titillating sex, all in an effort to boost morale and support our troops! Initially brainwashed by the terrifying, voluptuous, and always half-naked Madame Toy to be “the perfect assassin” for the Red forces, Cannon was eventually rescued and brainwashed (again) by the CIA until he had no emotions whatsoever. Under the employ of our government’s Central Intelligence Agency, Cannon experiences action like no other agent! Black & white

Wallace Allan Wood (1927–1981) rebooted Marvel's Daredevil, designing the iconic costume that recently appeared on the smash hit Netflix series. He was one of the best and funniest cartoonists of the earliest iteration of Mad magazine and, thanks to his work on the EC Comics line, he is also widely considered one of America’s greatest science-fiction cartoonists. With his magazine anthology witzend, he helped pioneer underground/independent comics publishing.Review:
“This is a visually stunning book... The real treat here is the ART! And I deliberately capitalise the word to emphasise just how beautiful Wood’s work is throughout the collection.”
- Colm Creamer, Forbidden Planet International
