Captain Action #2 - Wally Wood art

Captain Action v1 #2, 1969 - Although Wally Wood completed the first issue on his own, here he relinquishes the pencils to colleague Gil Kane. The results are more dimensional and dynamic pages. Kane's figure drawings are infused with a confident knowledge of anatomy. Counter-balancing his explosive layouts are two comparatively calm opening splash pages. Wood's superb inking not only adds detail where needed, but provides the definition and polish that makes this effort exceptional. Of their frequent collaborations during this era, this issue represents some their best work together. The cover is by Gil Kane. This is number 2 of 4 Captain Action issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Captain Action issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
