    Description

    Al Williamson and Roy Krenkel - Original Art to Weird Fantasy #18, Complete 6-Page Story, "Homesick!" (EC, 1953). Al Williamson and Roy Krenkel were both fans of science fiction and Al Feldstein, EC writer and editor, made sure that they got stories that allowed them to indulge themselves in drawing rocket ships, space stations, heroic rogues, and ray guns. Roy Krenkel provided the incredibly detailed backgrounds (pencils and inks) that set the stage for Al Williamson's figures (pencils and inks). There are very few stories like this one that represent them at the peak of their form. There are editorial markings and white-out used throughout the pages of the story, and there is minor toning and light discolorations on the edges of the pages. About one third of the lettering consists of paste-ups. All of the craft-tint panels have been "taped in". None of these defects materially detracts from the viewer's appreciation of the stellar piece. Overall size is approximately 15"x 22". Image size is approximately 13" x 18".
