Boris Karloff #11 - Al Williamson art


Boris Karloff Tales of Mystery v1 #11, 1965 - Three selfish men revel in hearing, seeing and speaking of the tragic events of others. Coinciding with the story's theme of "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil", this effort by Al Williamson is polished and consummately professional. The constantly changing settings give the artist a variety of foreign locales to draw, from the harbor of Hong Kong (see interior page below) to the famed London Bridge. Meticulous in detail, Williamson displays a work of confidence and excellence. This story was later reprinted in the book Al Williamson Forbidden Worlds. Other artists in this issue include Al McWilliams and Joe Orlando. This is number 1 of 1 Boris Karloff issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Boris Karloff issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
