Boris Karloff #9 - Wally Wood art


Boris Karloff Tales of Mystery v1 #9, 1965 - This medieval tale tells of an unscrupulous knight that seeks his cousin's throne. One of only a small handful of works for Gold Key, Wally Wood does a admirable and capable job. His drawings of the era are highly stylistic and seemingly well-researched. The layouts are somewhat tame, but the impressive details on the castle interiors, armor, costumes, and architecture more than compensate. This story was later reprinted in Mystery Comics Digest #6. Other artists in this issue include Frank Thorne and Fred Fredericks. This is number 1 of 1 Boris Karloff issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Boris Karloff or Wood issues.
