Cadet Gray of West Point #1 - Al Williamson art


Cadet Gray of West Point v1 #1 / Dell Giant, 1958 - This perfect-bound, one-shot issue chronicles the life of a young cadet. His experiences at the military academy are interspersed with tales of America's historic battles. A different artist contributes to each segment. Al Williamson's depiction of Captain John Paul Jones O' Brien at Buena Vista is the most noteworthy. Despite being less dynamic than his western and science fiction works, his art has the appropriate feel of a documentary. Other artists in this issue include John Buscema and Joe Sinnott. This is number 1 of 1 Cadet Gray of West Point issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
