    Description

    Captain Science #4 (Youthful Magazines, 1951) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. Here is an early Wally Wood and Joe Orlando cover. While this is a relatively early effort, Wood is already drawing fantastic beautiful women in sensual poses, detailed spaceship interiors and slimy alien creatures - motifs that would be closely identified with the artist throughout his career. The gal threatened by the space monster in the background is a fine example of an early Wood woman. Fortunately Captain Science and his pal are on the scene to teach that big-headed alien not to mess with Earth girls! This comic has brilliant cover inks and clean edges, it's marred only by light spine and corner wear. Overstreet 2002 FN 6.0 value = $240; VF 8.0 value = $500.
