Mystic #60 - Al Williamson art

Mystic v1 #60, 1957 - Four thieves make their escape on a plane to Haiti, only to encounter a strange old man with an unusual treasure map. The initial artwork by Al Williamson seems ponderous and unexciting, atypical of the artist. However, his pencils improve with each subsequent page, aided by the deft hand of inker Ralph Mayo. Their collaborations, such as this case, often resulted in more polished, aesthetically pleasing work. Other artists in this issue include Sid Check, Gene Colan and John Severin (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Mystic issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Mystic issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
