The Unexpected #122 - Wally Wood art


The Unexpected v1 #122, 1971 - In trying to outwit a gypsy's curse, a cold-blooded murderer finds it no easy task. Jerry Grandenetti's often harsh pencils are softened by the inks of Wally Wood. His divisions of dark and light are similar in approach but are that much more clarified. Faces and figures are smoother, while retaining their intended expressions. Fans of Dick Dillin will also not be disappointed by one of the few mystery stories he did for DC. Other artists in this issue include Vince Colletta, Murphy Anderson, Dick Giordano and Nick Cardy (cover). This is number 1 of 3 Unexpected issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Unexpected issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
