Weird Science v2 #18, 1953 - In a remote part of the galaxy, a rocket ship lands on a rubbery-surfaced moon. Outer space is filled with a multitude of stars in this stunning Al Williamson effort. Dramatic lighting and sensitively applied brushstrokes make this story a standout among his EC works. Wally Wood does an equally compelling job with his Ray Bradbury adaptation, telling the tale of astronauts finding long-dead loved ones on Mars. The same high level of craftsmanship occurs on the cover, where Wood rings an atomic explosion with an armada of flying saucers. Other artists in this issue include Jack Kamen and Joe Orlando. This is number 16 of 20 Weird Science issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 4 of 8 Weird Science issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
