    Description

    Wally Wood - Original Cover Art for Weird Science-Fantasy #23 (EC, 1954). One of Wally Wood's most intriguing concepts -- a spaceship crashes underwater -- also proves to be one of his most evocative covers for EC. From the dramatic posing of the dying astronauts to the shadowy city in the background, all rendered with Wood's legendary brushwork, this is one eerily beautiful cover. Wood's EC science fiction covers have been off the market for years (and most are still in the hands of private collectors), making this a rare treat which we are proud to offer. As is common for many EC covers, there are production notes in the margins, and some aspects of the cover have been inked in red to aid the engravers. Some light stains in the margins, but very little tanning. A truly stunning piece from the great Wally Wood. 15" x 22".
