Collected here in this handsome new volume are the greatest hits of Shelton's favorite and most archly-satirical comic book antihero.
In everyday life he is mild-mannered, slightly-built reporter Philbert Desanex, but lurking deep inside him is Wonder Wart-Hog, the 8-foot tall, 800 pound Hog of Steel. Whenever he is called upon, Wonder Wart-Hog shows up to save the day and applies his universal solution to all of life's problems... extreme violence!
Wonder Wart-Hog started in 1962 and is Shelton’s earliest comic work.
