Hercules Unbound #8 - Walt Simonson / Wally Wood art & cover

Walt Simonson / Wally Wood
Hercules Unbound v1 #8, 1977 - Through her brilliant mind, an old woman builds advanced technological weaponry to participate in a real life war game. She strikes a bargain with Hercules, who agrees to fight on her side. Wally Wood's final issue begins with a fiery cover, superbly showcasing the hero and his supporting characters. Walt Simonson also does an excellent job with the title page spread. Like the previous issue, Wood's inking dominates the pencils, benefiting the whole. This is number 8 of 8 Hercules Unbound issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 2 of 6 Hercules Unbound issues with Simonson art and/or covers.
