    Description

    Joe Orlando Weird Science #14 "They Shall Inherit" Title Page 1 Original Art (EC, 1952). Joe Orlando hit his stride on this highly detailed title page, brimming with classic EC S-F suspense. At Wally Wood's suggestion Joe Orlando applied for work at EC and soon he was contributing to their SF, horror, and suspense titles in a style that was heavily influenced by Wood. William Gaines and Al Feldstein were thrilled. They felt they now had "two Woods." As Steve Duin and Mike Richardson's book Comics Between the Panels recounts, "The first time EC asked Orlando to prove he could ink like his old buddy, he almost died. 'But they liked it,' he said. 'I was surprised. It went on from there. I even tried to break away from Wally Wood.'" The image area is 13" x 18". Panel one was drawn on Craftint Duotone paper, and tipped into the page (with tape on the back), and there is a missing lettering correction; otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition.
