    Joe Orlando - Original Art for Weird Science #15 "Bum Steer" - Complete 7- Page Story (EC, 1952). Some of the most bizarre aliens ever to appear in any EC comic (they look like centaurs with plant-like arms, horns, and a mane of luxurious hair) populate this blunt cautionary tale about cowboys being kidnapped to an alien planet where they suspect their ultimate fate may be eerily similar to the cattle they left behind on Earth... Orlando is an underrated EC artist, and this story is a lovely example of his solid work for the company. He makes the outlandish aliens believable, and beautifully renders the raven-haired woman the aliens use as bait. This 7-page story is exceptionally clean, with very little tanning and only two paste-up corrections on page six. Seven pages, measuring 15" x 22" each.
