Frontline Combat #1 - Wally Wood art


Frontline Combat v1 #1, 1951 - One of two seminal war titles published by EC, the series would influence the genre for decades to come. In Wally Wood's tale, the captain of a Nazi submarine is left behind by his crew. Undulating ocean waves and explosions benefit from the artist's meticulous style. On the opening panel, the scene of sunken u-boat is enhanced by various objects bleeding into the borders. Other artists in this issue include Russ Heath, Jack Davis, John Severin and Harvey Kurtzman (cover). This is number 1 of 13 Frontline Combat issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Frontline Combat issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
