Description

    Wally Wood - Weird Science #14 Cover Original Art (EC, 1952). Many of the top comic artists of the 1950s gravitated to EC, as Bill Gaines' outfit had established a reputation for rewarding quality. The three EC editor/writer/artists allowed their pool of artists to ink their own pencils, and never fretted over maintaining a homogenized "house style." Within the superb roster of all-stars assembled for Bill Gaines' imprint, the title of "top science fiction artist" was awarded to Wally Wood. Even so, his slick, hyper-realistic style lent itself to virtually every EC story, be it horror, humor, war, or science fiction. Without a doubt, Wood's science fiction covers remain among the best the genre has ever produced. Here is one of his masterpieces -- an erotically charged scene, showing the electrifying contact between two alien cultures, as detailed in the shocker, "There'll Be Some Changes Made." Beautifully drawn, this stellar cover has an image area of 13" x 19", and the art is in Excellent condition.
