Two-Fisted Tales #18 - Wally Wood art


Two-Fisted Tales v1 #18, 1950 - Formerly Haunt of Fear, this war genre title begins an impressive run. Along with Frontline Combat, this was one of only two ongoing war books in EC's 1950s lineup. Wally Wood illustrates a tale of two professional soldiers, fighting on the opposite sides of a Central American revolution. One of his early works, the art generally lacks polish and maturity. Most of the page layouts and figure drawings are especially clumsy. Fortunately, Wood would progress quickly working on one of the most sophisticated war titles of the era. Additional story art by Al Feldstein, Johnny Craig and Harvey Kurtzman. This is number 1 of 18 Two-Fisted Tales issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Two-Fisted Tales issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
