Angel and the Ape #3 - Wally Wood art

Angel  and the Ape v1 #3 - Wally Wood dc silver age 1960s comic book page art
Angel and the Ape v1 #3, 1969
- This issue parodies the old horror movie theme of a remote castle, a cast of seedy characters, and a hidden killer in their midst. With few a exceptions, the artwork is devoid of splash pages and large panels. Certain pages look more crowded than others, resulting in a lengthier read. Wally Wood's finely crafted inks enhance the already stellar pencils of Bob Oksner, one of the artists of the humor genre. Wood has a strong, recognizable presence in this issue, like most of his inking during the bronze age. A few tastefully drawn cheesecake panels of Angel O' Day (in a nurse's uniform no less) should impress enthusiasts of comic book good girl art. Cover by Bob Oksner. This is number 2 of 5 Angel and the Ape issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Angel and the Ape issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
