Valor #1 - Wally Wood art & cover, Al Williamson art

Wally Wood
Valor v1 #1, 1955 - Wally Wood's majestic cover accompanies his story inside: three hundred years after his death, King Arthur returns to claim England's throne. The artwork depicts knights, maidens, villages and castles in all their medieval splendor. In Al Williamson's tale of ancient Rome, a captain falls in love with a Greek slave girl, incurring the wrath of the Empress. The drawings are sophisticated and sensitive, despite the small panels and abundant dialogue. Both Williamson and Wood contribute visually striking works for this bold premiere issue. This was later reprinted in Valor v2 #1. Other artists in this issue include Bernie Krigstein and Graham Ingels. This is number 1 of 4 Valor issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 1 of 4 Valor issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
