Description

    Wally Wood Weird Science #15 "Captivity" Cover Original Art (EC, 1952). As if there were any doubt, this classic and spectacular cover proves that Wally Wood knew what would sell comics to the readers of the 1950s -- 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 fan-addict or original art maven. Wood's work here is absolutely stunning, with every brushstroke proclaiming the mark of a genius. Wood's science fiction covers for EC are long held in private collections, and whenever one is offered in the open market -- it's an opportunity that should not be missed. This ultra-classic cover has image area of 13.5" x 19.5". There has been some toning and discoloration along the top, right, and bottom edges of the margins, but the central image area was not visibly affected; otherwise, this EC masterwork is in Very Good condition.
