Mystery Tales #44 - Al Williamson art


Mystery Tales v1 #44, 1956 - After a missile attack from Mars, a small fleet of Earth ships travels to the planet to respond with atomic weapons. This tale by Al Williamson is both spontaneous and artfully drawn. Despite the small panels, details are impressively added to the characters' faces, attire and planetary views (see interior page below). Roy Krenkel's delicate lines further improve upon the art, reinforcing his status as one of Williamson's best inkers. Other artists in this issue include George Roussos, Robert McCarty, Paul Hodge, Herb Familton, Mike Seokwsky and Bill Everett (cover). This is number 1 of 4 Mystery Tales issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
