Strange Adventures #154 - Wally Wood art

Strange Adventures v1 #154, 1963 - Aliens from another planet arrive on Earth bearing gifts, but only a recently blinded astronaut can see through their charade. Wally Wood's inks overwork the original pencils, resulting in panels are are often muddy. In general, Gil Kane's style tends to dominate the bulk of the pages. The only exceptions are certain scenes with alien machinery (see interior page below), where Wood's detailing comes to the fore. Other artists in this issue include Sid Greene and Carmine Infantino. This is number 1 of 1 Strange Adventures issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Strange Adventures issues. See also this blog's Wally Wood checklist.
