    Wally Wood Aces High #5 Complete 7-Page Story "Ordeal" Original Art (EC, 1955). Although perhaps most celebrated for his science-fiction yarns at EC, Wally Wood proved himself a master in the war genre as well. This seven-page, post-Code "Flying Tiger" story is a great example. Wood's jaw-dropping art is at its most refined for this, the final story of the final issue of Aces High. The art is in ink and Zipatone over graphite on Bristol board; each page of the story has an image area that measure approximately 13" x 19.5". Pages 1-3 are matted and Plexiglas front framed together for a total frame size of 56" x 30.5". Pages 4-7 are unframed. There is overall light tanning on all pages; page four has a minor stain and the last page has a bit of a bend in the top tier of panels. Other than noted, the pages are in Excellent condition.
