    Well, outside of the covers, don't expect the Ashley Wood you currently know and love. As I recall, and it has been sometime since I pulled them out of the archives, early Wood pencils kind of had a John McCrea vibe. But I am a sucker for finding rare, early work from artists I like.

    Along those lines is my recent discovery of a mini-series Wood did with Paul Jenkins, also from the Acclaim/Valliant Comics, called Deadside. A four issue series, of which only 3 issues made it out before Acclaim's lights went out. I had no idea this series existed until just a few weeks ago, and I can't wait to track down the issues. I believe he did these right before Automatic Kafka, so the style might be closer to what it is now.

    Pride and Joy reminds me of History of Violence, only with more focus on the whole Father-and-Son relationship. Pretty good work.

    I found this in a bargin bin, and once I got over the shock of finding an Ennis trade in a bargin bin, I bought it and really liked it. Its better than either version of A History of Violence.
