Haunt of Fear v2 #5 - Wally Wood art


Haunt of Fear v2 #5, 1951 - Constantly abusing his employees, a small-time carnival owner has the tables turned on him, with fatal results. Wally Wood's art is generally lacking overall. While a few panels use some intense lighting effects, most of the pages suffer from poorly designed layouts and uninspired drawings. Given the colorful setting of a carnival and a bevy of exotic freaks, Wood seems to squander the aesthetic opportunities. Other artists in this issue include Graham Ingels, Johnny Craig and Jack Davis. This is number 4 of 5 Haunt of Fear issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Haunt of Fear issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
