Wally Wood
Weird Science v2 #20, 1953 - Due to her husband's exposure to h-bomb radiation, a woman gives birth to a mutant freak. Wally Wood chronicles the little girl's life in an orphanage, revealing her appearance toward the tale's end. Masterfully drawn, Wood expends the same amount of effort to an array of beautiful women on the cover. Inside, the corresponding story by Al Williamson tells of one man's lust over 50 beauties in suspended animation. The artist's more sophisticated style employs fine lines and halftones sometimes lost in the reproduction process. Frank Frazetta's partial inks add little, if any, improvement to the original pencils. Other artists in this issue include Jack Kamen and Joe Orlando. This is number 18 of 20 Weird Science issues with Wood art and/or covers, number 6 of 8 Weird Science issues with Williamson art and/or cover and number 2 of 3 Weird Science issues with Frazetta art and/or covers.
