Mystery Tales #51 - Al Williamson art


Mystery Tales v1 #51, 1957 - Confining himself to a remote Tibeta mountain, a rogue scientist completes his controversial growth serum. In a mere four pages, Al Williamson tells the story succinctly and beautifully. From the cabin interior's disheveled bookcases to the massive rock formations outside, the artist renders this lonely setting with realistic flair. Every page shows exceptional detail, thanks to Ralph Mayo's deft inking. This story was later reprinted in The Art of Al Williamson. Other artists in this issue include Joe Orlando, Ross Andru, Mike Esposito, Dave Berg, Ed Winiarski and Bill Everett (cover). This is number 4 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.
