Description

    Wally Wood - Original Cover Art for Weird Science #9 (EC, 1951). One of the finest artists to grace the pages of EC Comics, Wally Wood had a style that was instantly recognizable to his legion of fans. Whether he was drawing the most beautiful women or, as in this cover, the most horrific aliens, Wood always came through, with a flair and a panache that few could equal. Perfectly at home with virtually all of the genres EC published, Wood's genius shone through most brightly in his science-fiction work. One glance at the cover offered here, and it's easy to see that "Woody" had an imagination that just wouldn't quit, enabling him to render aliens that were truly alien, and spaceships that were truly out of this world. The cover offered here is an absolute gem. Measuring approximately 15" x 21.75" overall, this piece is in excellent condition, and, as a bonus, is signed by the artist, both in the art itself and in the border. Don't expect to see this cover surface for sale again for quite some time, as the lucky buyer will no doubt treasure it for years to come.
