    Description

    Wally Wood - Weird Science #5 Splash Page 1 Original Art (EC, 1951). A cautionary tale about the evils of war and conflict, this detailed splash page shows Wally Wood at his best. Measuring approximately 15" x 22" overall, with an approximate image area of 13" x 18", this dark, moody piece demonstrates Wood's uncanny understanding of the power of light and shadow. A paste-up art correction of a figure's face has slipped of in panel three; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition. This page is signed "Wood" in the lower left corner of the first panel. As a bonus, there is some preliminary sketchwork on the reverse. Wally Wood returned to the Weird Science title with this story and his art appeared in every issue thereafter, establishing his legacy as a SF master. This splash is a sure winner for any Wood fan.
