Jann of the Jungle #16 - Al Williamson art


Jann of the Jungle v1 #16, 1957 - Having done an earlier cover on the series, Al Williamson draws three exceptional stories in this issue. It's a departure from his usual western and science-fiction comics, but no less impressive. Williamson's drawings are augmented by the superb inks of Ralph Mayo, who may have had a hand in the pencils as well. Each tale displays exotic and beautiful backgrounds, resulting in some of the finest jungle depictions of the era. Williamson's third story was later reprinted in Savage Tales #6. Other artists in this issue include Bill Everett (cover). This is number 2 of 3 Jann of the Jungle issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Jann of the Jungle issues. See also this blog's Al Williamson checklist.
