Wallace Wood's Final Graphic Novel. Combining the wit that made Wood a star at MAD with the far-out settings that made him famous on Weird Science, only a few Lunar Tunes pages originally saw print in Witzend but Vanguard has published this, The Complete Lunar Tunes. Classic Wood characters Bucky, robot Iron Myron, Pip, Nudine and Snorky are joined in their cosmic excursions by a surreal parade including Russians, JFK, Bogart, Bob Hope, Elton John, Jack Webb, Patty Hurst, Playboy bunnies, Wood himself and the Rolling Stones! Lunar Tunes is a last-gasp, complete with nudity, from one of the fathers of the Underground Comix movement the ultimate example of Wood's self-deprecating motto: Never draw what you can copy; never copy what you can trace; never trace what you can cut and paste in.

Lunar Tunes is the last comics work Wood did before he killed himself. You can plainly see the struggle in the book. Wood has called all his old characters together for one last strut onstage before he exits. Wally (God) is looking down sadly onto the little world of his creation. This work... cries out. --Forty Cartoon Books of Interest (Buenaventura Press, 2006)
The wit in these strips is a kind of cartoon martini of burlesque vermouth shaken with Lewis Carroll gin. Throw in a couple olives pickled in the brine of bad relationships and voila! A curious... interesting footnote to a tremendous career. --chrisallenonline.com
A troubled yet entertaining, bizarre, but unmistakably individual project. I found it quite spellbinding. ...a boon for every Wood fan, though non-fans will absolutely not want to start here. A compelling portrait of a talent's struggle to deliver just a few more bursts of expression before such things are no longer possible. --Jog - The Blog
