Description

    Wally Wood Weird Science #21 Cover Original Art (EC, 1953). Few science fiction/fantasy "cover hooks" are used as often as that of a beautiful "good girl" being saved from the clutches of an alien monster by a handsome hero. But when the artist is the talented Wally Wood, EC fan-addicts are sure to cry out, "One more time!" Wood's hard work was legendary. Fellow artist Roy Krenkel's anecdote about Wood's work schedule is typical, "You'd come to Wally's door, and you'd realize Wally had been up all night. The door finally, slowly, opens, and Wally stands there with an absolutely glazed look in his eyes, totally incapable of focusing. The guy was totally obsessed with work. Why it didn't kill him, I'll never know." Wood's hard work paid off and his EC work made him a legend in the comic book field. This sensational cover has an image area of 13.25" x 20". The "Incredible Science-Fiction Stories" banner at the bottom of the page is a replacement, and the cover has been professionally restored to Excellent condition.
