Journey Into Mystery #44 - Al Williamson art

Journey Into Mystery v1 #44, 1957 - A petty thief goes on the run and encounters mythical little green men. The large opening panel has superbly delineated trees and foliage, creating a dark and intense mood (see interior page below). Al Williamson's pencils are impressive, made more so by Ralph Mayo's luscious inking job. The issue also contains a one page text story with a small illustration that looks most likely by Williamson. Other artists in this issue include Vince Colletta, Tony DiPreta, Frank Bolle, Don Heck, Doug Wildey, Ed Winiarski and Bill Everett (cover). This is number 3 of 4 Journey Into Mystery issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Journey Into Mystery issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
