    Description

    Wally Wood - Original Cover Art to Weird Science #15 (EC, 1952). As if there were any doubt, this classic and spectacular cover proves that Wally Wood knew what would sell comic magazines to the children of the '50s -- namely guys in cool spacesuits, sleek rocket ships, and gigantic, rampaging dinosaurs. Was there ever any finer EC SF cover? The question is, of course, open for debate, but there's no denying that this is the stuff of dreams for any EC fanatic or original art maven. Wally's work here is absolutely stunning, with every brushstroke signifying the mark of a genius. Wood's science fiction covers for EC have long been held in private collections, and this one sneaking onto the market is a rare occurrence indeed, and an opportunity that should not be ignored. Measures 15" x 22", with an image area of 13.5" x 19.5".
