    Wally Wood Shock SuspenStories #2 Cover Original Art (EC, 1952). This classic EC cover illustrates the legendary story, "The Patriots," which single-handedly kicked off the celebrated, socially relevant themes found in this title. As such, the importance of this cover can scarcely be overstated -- as comics historian Bhob Stewart has noted, "With 'The Patriots' the 'Shock SuspenStory' was born." This dramatically composed fight scene is peak Wally Wood, with the master's trademarked detail and rich inking. This cover has an image area of 13.5" x 19.25", and is missing only the issue number stat; otherwise, it is in Excellent condition. It's an absolutely fantastic example of why EC is considered the "gold standard of excellence" in comic art.
