Mystery Tales #46 - Al Williamson art


Mystery Tales v1 #46, 1956 - A sailor stumbles upon the lost city of Atlantis, discovering a new untapped power source. The artwork is lush and sophisticated, using a painterly approach that's most evident in the oceanic settings. Al Williamson nicely contrasts this environment against futuristic, extra-terrestrial architecture. Roy Krenkel, a talented artist in his own right, does a terrific job with the finishing touches. Other artists in this issue include John Forte, Don Heck, Vince Colletta, Reed Crandall, Sol Bordksy, Robert Q. Sale and Bill Everett (cover). This is number 2 of 4 Mystery Tales issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Mystery Tales issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
