    Wally Wood -Original Cover Art for Weird Science #12 (EC, 1952). Many of the finest comic artists of the 1950s gravitated to EC, as they were the unchallenged industry-leader, publishing books that were both compelling and cutting edge. Of all the great talent assembled under Bill Gaines' banner, the top of the heap was reserved for the legendary Wally Wood. His slick, expressive style lent itself to virtually any kind of story, from horror and humor to wartime and sci-fi. His science-fiction covers are considered classics, some of the very best the genre has ever produced. Offered here is one such masterpiece, showing a playful moment between an man and his dog in the weightlessness of outer space. Beautifully rendered, this 14.75" x 22" treasure is in excellent condition, and is signed by the artist. Wood science-fiction covers are jealously hoarded by collectors. This may be the last opportunity for quite some time to acquire one for your collection.
