Angel and the Ape #5 - Wally Wood art


Angel and the Ape v1 #5, 1969 - Unlike the other Wally Wood issues in this series, the artist makes a relatively small contribution. Inking over Bob Oksner's pencils, Wood makes the artwork his own with seemingly little effort. Some panels are busier than others, but maintain clarity and polish without losing spontaneity. In addition to the cover, Oksner handles the lengthier lead story himself. This presents a prime opportunity to examine his style with and without Wood's help. While it's hard to deny that "The Case of Hippie, Hippie, Hooray" is aesthetically more pleasing, Oksner's work stands tall on its own merits. Joe Orlando draws a sizeable text illo toward the end of the book. This is number 4 of 5 Angel and the Ape issues with Wood art and/or covers.
