Forbidden Worlds #3 - Al Williamson // Frank Frazetta / Wally Wood art


Forbidden Worlds v1 #3, 1951 - An anthropologist confesses to murder and suffers the grim consequences. Although clumsily written, Al Williamson's art far exceeds the rest of the book. Pages abound with rich textures that support the tone of each scene. Overstreet's guide credits most of the inks to Joe Orlando with a single panel attributed to Wally Wood. However, The Art of Al Williamson checklist divides up the chores equally. Wood's contributions seem to appear on pages 1 and 3 but it's hard to be sure. Both sources agree that a single panel, most likely page 6 panel 3, was inked by Frank Frazetta. Other artists in this issue include Ogden Whitney. This is number 2 of 8 Forbidden Worlds issues with Williamson art and/or covers, number 1 of 1 Forbidden Worlds issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 2 of 2 Forbidden Worlds issues with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson, Wood, Frazetta or Forbidden Worlds issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist, Wood checklist, Frazetta checklist or Top 10 Frazetta comics.
