Strange Tales #64 - Al Williamson art

Strange Tales v1 #64, 1958 - The discovery of a youth serum has hundreds flocking to the scientist who invented it. Al Williamson's painterly inks create a ominous mood on the first two pages (see interior page below) but falters from there. A few panels are obscure, even sloppy in their execution. Most unfortunately is page three panel five, where the face of a mysterious seer is blatantly modified. Her mouth poorly drawn, inconsistent and disproportionate. Probably not done by Williamson himself but perhaps someone making a last minute change in the editorial department? Other artists in this issue include Vic Carrabotta, John Forte, Robert McCarty, Jim Mooney, Bob Powell and Joe Maneely (cover). This is number 2 of 2 Strange Tales issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
