Forbidden Worlds #6 - Al Williamson art

Forbidden Worlds v1 #6, 1951 - Silly by even 1950s standards, this tale features a bat-winged, demon-like phantom whose head can disembody itself and fly on its own. Admirably, Al Williamson makes a sincere effort at this horror tale. His fine brushwork brings a sophisticated credibility in more than a few scenes. Certain pages and panels are crowded, but not to the detriment of the artwork as a whole. Other artists in this issue include Sam Cooper. This is number 4 of 8 Forbidden Worlds issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Forbidden Worlds issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
