Feature Presentations #6 (Moby Dick) - Wally Wood cover

Wally Wood
Feature Presentations v1 #6 featuring Moby Dick, 1950 - Though not the first comic book adaptation of Herman Melville's Moby Dick, it is among the most memorable due to Wally Wood's dynamic cover. Captain Ahab's slightly askew face forcefully conveys his obsession with the whale (mis-colored in grey). This montage contains all the pertinent story elements, with the exception of the narrator Ishmael. Wood's attention to detail is phenomenal for such an early work. His talent is most evident in the tall ship and the churning ocean waters. This is number 1 of 1 Feature Presentations issues with Wood art and/or covers.
