Kull #1 - Wally Wood art


Kull (the Conquerer) v1 #1, 1971 - After making his first comic book appearance in Creatures on the Loose #10, Kull's adventures with this bronze age premiere issue. Wally Wood provides the inks over Ross Andru's pencils, giving the drawings a more sophisticated finish. Barbaric figures and primitive settings all benefit from his steady draftsmanship. The montage of scenes featuring Kull's historical background (page 14) is particularly good. Sadly, this would be Wood's only contribution to the series. Other artists in this issue include Marie Severin (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Kull issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Kull issues.

  2. Kull #1 was not Penciled by Ross Andru and Inked by Wallace Wood. They were EQUAL collaborating ARTISTS on the issue. Their names are listed EQUALLY in alphabetical order. Actually, if anyone, WOOD was the primary artist and was ANNOUNCED as such in the publisher's official news outlet of the time which was MarvelMania Magazine.
