    Wally Wood and Harry Harrison Weird Science #12 (#1) Complete 7-page Story "Dream of Doom" Original Art (EC, 1950). The multi-talented Wally Wood showcased his talents for action, fantasy, and satirical storytelling in this thriller-diller from the premiere issue of Weird Science. Harry Harrison, later a celebrated science fiction writer, recalled of the Wood-Harrison art team, "For EC it was chiefly western romances, and somewhere along the line we talked Bill into trying to start a science fiction comic. I was always a science fiction fan, and Wally was interested in science fiction too. I gave Gaines a lot of it to read. We just wanted to do a science fiction comic since there was none out there at that time. We kept working on Bill, and he finally took a flyer on it." Caricatures of Al Feldstein, Bill Gaines, Johnny Craig, Harvey Kurtzman are a hilarious highlight of this nightmarish lampoon of the comics industry. Wood's art reveals the powerful influence that Will Eisner's art had on his early career and his use of lettered "sound effects" is integral to the story . Each page of "Dream of Doom" has an image area of 13" x 18". Panels five and six of page seven are vintage photostat art corrections; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition. Don't miss out on your chance to win this milestone of EC lore.
