Spellbound #34 - non-attributed Al Williamson art

Spellbound v1 #34, 1957 - This final issue includes a non-attributed story by Al Williamson. A wealthy widow is preyed upon by a charlatan who claims contact with her dead husband (not quite what's depicted on the cover). While not one of his strongest works, Williamson's drawings mostly meet expectations. The inking is particularly heavy in some panels, not uncommon for frequent collaborator Ralph Mayo. Other artists in this issue include Richard Doxsee, Frank Bolle, John Forte, George Roussos, Robert Q Sale and Carl Burgos (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Spellbound issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Spellbound issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
