One of the classic old school greats of comic book illustration, Wallace Wood was also among the earliest champions of creator rights for cartoonists, and Witzend was perhaps his most important legacy in this regard. Produced during the heyday of underground comics, Wood saw that "the kids" were taking control – and creative ownership – of their work. As, of course, had his colleague, Harvey Kurtzman with Humbug & Help. Witzend was Wood's contribution to evolving the commercial framework in which comics were made and sold, and the comics and supporting material herein produced reflect these aims.
