Al Williamson Weird Science #16 Story Page 5 Original Art (EC, 1952). Bill Gaines and Al Feldstein co-plotted this prime era EC sci-fi tale "Space-Borne!" with art by the great Al Williamson. You just can't really get much better than that! Williamson's attention to detail makes this page a true treat, even though Lon and Enid are just lolling around a utopian unspoiled planet. The artist seems to have tried a couple of different layouts on the page, as five of the seven panels are original art paste-ups created on Duotone board. They are affixed to a regular Bristol board, with original art (and Zipatone) in Panels 3 and 4. Rendered in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 13" x 18". There is a missing text correction paste-up, and some small amounts of glue residue near some of the various paste-ups. Signed by Al Williamson in the lower left margin. Lightly toned and in Very Good condition.
