Witching Hour #15 - Wally Wood art

Witching Hour v1 #15, 1971 - An unpredictable brute becomes a killer under the care of the insitutional psychiatrist. Most of the scenes are darkly lit, showcasing Wally Wood's mastery of shadow and highlights (see interior page below). His meticulous detail is vaguely reminiscent of his EC tales of the 1950s. The artwork is omnious and disturbing, appropriately setting the tone for the ending plot twist. Other artists in this issue include Gray Morrow, Art Saaf and Nick Cardy. This is number 2 of 2 Witching Hour issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Witching Hour issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
