Description

    Wally Wood Frontline Combat #13 Cover and Color Guide Original Art Group (EC, 1953). One of the most celebrated artists to illustrate the pages of EC, Wally Wood's work is still eagerly sought out by a legion of fans. Whether he was drawing incredible science fiction tales or, as in this cover, frontline combat scenes, Wood always delivered, with a bravura and attention to detail that few cartoonists, if any, could match. Called upon to work in every genre that EC published, Wood's visions of war were just as compelling as those he created for the crime, humor, or horror yarns. This cover was the first of only three covers that Wood drew for Frontline Combat -- in fact, he only did a total of five covers for EC's war titles, so bid accordingly. This superb cover has an image area of 13.5" x 19.5", and it has been matted and framed to an overall size of 18" x 24". The art is in Excellent condition. Also included with this lot is an 8.5" x 12.5" hand-painted Marie Severin color guide of the cover.
