Cannon is by the legendary Wallace Wood (Mad, EC Comics, Daredevil)! Cannon appeared every week for two and a half years in Overseas Weekly, a newspaper distributed exclusively to U.S. Military bases around the world. Uncensored by commercial editorial restrictions, Wood pulled out all the stops âe" producing a thrilling and salacious Cold War spy serial run amok with brutal violence and titillating sex all in an effort to boost morale and support our troops! Meet John Cannon, the perfect agent and Americaâe(tm)s exploitative answer to James Bond. Initially brainwashed by the terrifying, voluptuous, and always half-naked Madame Toy to be âeoethe perfect assassinâe for the Red forces, Cannon was eventually rescued and brainwashed (again) by the CIA until he had no emotions whatsoever. Under the employ of our governmentâe(tm)s Central Intelligence Agency, Cannon experiences action like no other agent! Undercover and under the covers, Cannon endures nude torture by beautiful women, explosive gunplay, naked catfights, bone-crunching plastic surgery, nudity, Hitler, nihilistic lovemaking, Weasel the spy, naked women, death from above, and more naked women! Take that, 007! Together with the Wallace Wood Estate, and working from newly unearthed source material, Fantagraphics Books will be producing the biggest, baddest, best-looking collection of Cannon, ever!… (més)

This book is definitely a relic of its time. Wood liked to write sexy action comics for servicemen, so these stories originated in comics sent to soldiers. Wood had a great art style, all bullet-headed agents and voluptuous, leggy women. He had a talent for drawing both action scenes and cheesecake pinups, and he was also especially good and looks of existential horror, which pop up once or twice in this volume.

One of the tropes of this series is that all the women are beautiful and none of them keep on their clothes. A handful of the female characters (heroes and villains both) are seemingly always nude or only occasionally dressed in see-through clothing. When given the opportunity to disrobe, they do, and if they need to escape a villain’s clutches in the altogether, they make the best of it.

This would all be a bunch of absurd, sexploitational fun if not for the threats of rape and casual misogyny that crop up throughout. I liked the art and adventure enough that the occasional sour note didn’t ruin the book for me, but my rating definitely comes with a big asterisk. ( )

If you can imagine Cannon as a film co-directed by Sam Peckinpah and Russ Meyer, you'll probably have a good idea what this contains. Wally Wood is a legend, and though this is trashy and sexist, it's still hilariously over-the-top (intentionally so) and incredibly well drawn. ( )

A James Bond-esq cold-war romp in a weekly comic strip style from the 60s. The main character (John Cannon) was an American U-2 pilot shot down in China and brainwashed to become a killer assassin. He is sent back to America with a target but it caught first. He is reprogrammed to be a killer for America instead when his programming could not be reversed completely. The artwork is well drawn though there is an overdependence on breasts to carry the story. Though, there is not question Wallace Wood had a talent for drawing them well. Not a whole lot of depth to this one. ( )
