Frontline Combat #9 - Wally Wood art

Frontline Combat v1 #9 ec golden age comic book page art by Wally WoodFrontline Combat v1 #9, 1952 - The Civil War is the theme for this special EC issue. Wally Wood chronicles the early days leading up to the conflict. In St. Louis, crowds gather in the streets, anticipating violence. The artwork is exquisitely drawn, starting with the opening panel. A pair of military drums in the foreground and a riverboat in the far distance are carefully placed to increase the illusion of depth. Wood's artwork excels even amongst his talented EC peers. Other artists in this issue include Jack Davis, John Severin, Will Elder and Harvey Kurtzman (cover). This is number 8 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.
