Hercules Unbound #1 - Wally Wood art

Hercules Unbound v1 #1, 1975 - The mythical god Hercules breaks his chains, only to find himself in the post-apocolyptic world of Jack Kirby's Kamandi. Here he befriends a blind teenager named Kevin and his dog Basil. Jose Luis Garcia Lopez's dynamic pencils are made more so by Wally Wood's sensitive inks. Mutants, sea creatures and minotaurs are all drawn with entertaining flair (see interior page below). Other artists in this issue include Ernie Chua (cover). This is number 1 of 8 Hercules Unbound issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Hercules Unbound issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
