The Wallace Wood Estate
Since the passing of the legendary cartoonist, illustrator, author, musician and graphic novelist, Wallace Wood, just after Halloween, 1981, the Wallace Wood Estate has been managed in keeping with the artist's Will. The Executor, who was chosen by Wood himself, enlisted long-time Wood associate, Bill Pearson, as Director of new Estate-related business. Under Pearson, Wood's legacy has continued with various authorized collections including Woodwork (Crouch/Sea Gate) The Complete Cannon (Fantagraphics), The Wally Wood Sketchbook (Vanguard), The Complete Sally Forth (Fantigraphics), The Complete Wally Wood Lunar Tunes (Vanguard), Illustrator Archives Wallace Wood Portfolio (Buffalo Nickel), The Wizard King Trilogy (Vanguard) and more. Since the new millennium, J. David Spurlock has served in a support role to Mr. Pearson, acting as Agent for the Estate. Mr. Spurlock has worked for years with the Wood family and Estate on various projects including Wood's acclaimed biography, Wally's World (with Steve Starger), co-founding The Wally Wood Scholarship Fund (with Wally's brother Glenn Wood), Curating the Wally Wood Day event at The National Arts Club (with Roger Hill), etc. 2011 saw a transitional period, with Mr. Spurlock taking over most of the day-to-day activities including the launch of a number of new initiatives to embellish Wood's legacy. Mr. Spurlock has been named the new Director as of January 2012.
