Strange Stories of Suspense #14 - Al Williamson art

Strange Stories of Suspense v1 #14, 1957 - After a year in disguise, a martian finally reveals himself to his small town community. Asking for acceptance, there are still many who harbor suspicion and resentment. The theme of prejudice is straightforwardly presented by Al Williamson, without flourish or dynamics. Still, the nuances of the artwork (reinforced by inker Raplh Mayo) gives the story a dignified air. Other artists in this issue include Dick Ayers, Tony DiPreta, Robert Q Sale, John Tartaglione and Bill Everett (cover). This is number 2 of 2 Strange Stories of Suspense issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Strange Stories of Suspense issues.
