    Wally Wood and Harry Harrison Haunt of Fear #15 "The Mad Magician" Splash Page Original Art (EC, 1950). The multi-talented Wally Wood showcased his talents for action and fantasy in this spine-tingling splash from the premiere issue of Haunt of Fear. Harry Harrison, later a celebrated science fiction writer, recalled of the Wood-Harrison art team, "For EC it was chiefly western romances, and somewhere along the line we talked Bill into trying to start a science fiction comic. I was always a science fiction fan, and Wally was interested in science fiction too." This pulse-pounding page, which shows the team's talents in a horror vein, has an image area of 13" x 18". An art correction stat has been taken off the magician's face to reveal a similar portrait, but featuring the hallmark Wood "double lighting" on the madman's face; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition.
