    Al Williamson - Original Art for Eerie #3, story page 17 (Warren, 1966). There's something about lighthouses that has inspired hundreds of horror writers -- and this creepy tale from Eerie #3 is no exception; they really should make the guardrails higher on these things, as somebody always plummets to their death by pitching over the edge. The detailed, somber artwork is by EC genius Al Williamson, and he fills every panel with power and dread, pulling us into this dank tale with his mastery of the medium. In the bottom margin, Williamson has signed the piece, and personalized it "to Wally, best always." We can't confirm that this was signed to the great Wally Wood, but it seems highly likely, as the two were friends and contemporaries. (We have since learned that this piece was in fact signed for noted art collector Wally Harrington.) In any event, this is a stunning piece of art by one of the true legends of the field, and would certainly fill the bill of any collector looking for a quality Williamson horror page. The artwork measures 11.5" x 16.25" with virtually no white-out; there is light blunting at all four corners, but this has no affect on the artwork.
