Forbidden Worlds #78 - Al Williamson art


Forbidden Worlds v1 #78, 1959 - After finding an unusual looking dog, a young couple adopts him into their family. A high level of draftsmanship permeates Al Williamson's drawings. Realistic yet painterly, many panels are dramatically lit for maximum effect. Perhaps most memorable is the final scene depicting a peaceful silhouette against a dark, gradated background. Note that the creature on the cover bears little resemblance to the one inside. This story was later reprinted in the book Al Williamson Forbidden Worlds. Other artists in this issue include Ogden Whitney, Jon Diehl and Al Wenzel. This is number 8 of 8 Forbidden Worlds issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
