To Die a Dozen Deaths-Jerry Grandenetti/Wallace Wood-1970

Here's an interesting combination. Both artists had started out as students of Will Eisner's style and both had even assisted/ghosted Eisner along the way but by 1970, their work had taken very different paths. Grandenetti was becoming more and more abstract while one could argue that Wood had turned into the smoothest comics artist ever. Wood's smoothness (Do I detect some Jack Abel, too?) here, unlike in most other cases, does NOT turn this into Wood art.
