    Wally Wood - Original Art for Weird Science #9, "The Invaders", Page 5 (EC, 1951). This is the next-to-the-last page of a story which told of a group of humans who escape total war by taking an experimental rocket ship and making their way to another planet. The twist being of course that these were not "humans" after all, and the planet they approached was in fact Earth. The cover gave it away, showing typically hideous alien creatures instead of the handsome human-types in the story. You can guess what happens when the peaceful strangers arrive, only to be greeted by armed Air Force jets! This was from the second Wally Wood story in issue #9, plus he did the cover illustration; yet even with such a heavy workload, Wood maintains his usual high quality in this crisp page. The image area is 13" x 18" and the page has been professionally matted to a size of 17.5" x 23.25". It's a beautiful, thought-provoking piece by one of the best-loved artists of the medium.
