Frontline Combat v1 #15, 1954 - Outgunned and outnumbered, American GIs try to hold a crucial perimeter during the Korean War. Wally Wood's draftsmanship is impeccable, filling the pages with war-torn, desolate landscapes. His weary soldiers carry the emotional scars of battle on their faces. The artwork is further enhanced by the use of halftones and gradations, adding texture while expanding depth. Just as compelling is Wood's complex cover, visualizing the exact moment of an enemy attack. Other artists in this issue include Jack Davis, John Severin and George Evans. This is number 13 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.
