Description

    Wally Wood Weird Science #22 "My World" Cover Original Art (EC, 1953). *Choke!* -- a comics fan just could not be jolted by a more brain-blasting vision of Cold War jitters than by this superlative Wally Wood masterpiece, done for Al Feldstein's and Woody's world-famous "My World" homage to S-F. Monstrous scenes, such as this one, with all the elements one could hope for, were electrifying and delightfully shudder-producing for almost every fantasy-starved fan who went to the movies in the fifties. The theme of a horrific space alien/monster attack reached its zenith with Topps' 1962 Mars Attacks trading cards, and naturally, Wally Wood had a hand in creating those too. Cold War fears of radioactive fallout and biological warfare helped make such inconceivable horrors seem almost inevitable. The image area of this museum-quality Pop Art masterwork measures 13.5" x 19.5", and aside from some light overall paper aging, it's in Excellent condition. Comic fans marveled at the love and dedication Wally Wood poured into his EC science fiction work, and here's a chance to acquire perhaps his finest cover ever -- the last for the legendary Weird Science series -- and perhaps the most celebrated S-F cover of them all. As the apex of "blue-chip" comic art, a Wood Weird Science cover is near the top of every serious collector's wish list. But these masterpieces change hands very infrequently, as evident by the fact that this is the first we've sold since 2009 -- and only the second since 2006 -- don't miss your chance!
