Weird Fantasy v2 #13 - Wally Wood art

Weird Fantasy v2 #13, 1952 - Wally Wood contributes two fine science fiction stories in this issue. His first tells of a massive comet that nearly destroys the planet, sterilizing everyone on Earth with its radiation. His second tale chronicles a boy waiting for his space-traveling father to come home. Both stories are futuristic, yet somber in theme. Wood illustrates them with sensitivity and sophistication. He goes into great detail on many pages, including the complex observatory on story 1 page 1 and the final panels on story 2. Both display an excellence in draftsmanship typical of EC titles. Other artists in this issue include Joe Orlando, Jack Kamen and Al Feldstein (cover). This is number 13 of 15 Weird Fantasy issues with Wood art and/or covers.
