    Wally Wood Frontline Combat #9 Complete 6-Page Story "Choose Sides" Original Art (EC, 1952). The EC war stories were some of the finest American comics ever done. Frontline Combat #9 was a special Civil War issue, and Wood lavished incredible detail into his art for the tale. The splash panel, with its focal point of a military drum, sets the stage for this shocking conflict among America's people. Bill Mason has noted in his commentary for The Complete EC Library, "The strongest story in the issue, however, is 'Choose Sides' with its drumbeat refrain, its documentary references to mounting violence on the last panel of every page and its frightening portrayal of the effects of civil war on a civilian population." The image area of each page measures 13" x 18". Pages one and two (only) have been matted side-by-side and framed. Aside from smudging, the art is in Excellent condition.
