Jungle Jim v3 #5 - Wally Wood cover

Wally Wood
Jungle Jim v3 #5, 1967 - Sadly, there appears to be only the minimum of effort on this silver age Wally Wood cover. The layout looks more like an enlarged reproduction of a smaller panel than an original drawn to appropriate size. The top spear is oddly placed (assuming it misses the woman's head), the figures lack clarity and the background is too sparse. Wood would find more success on later issues of this same series. This is the only issue published by King and the interiors are reprinted from Jungle Jim v2 #5 (the first Dell series). This is number 1 of 3 Jungle Jim issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Jungle Jim issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
