World of Suspense #7 - Al Williamson art

World of Suspense v1 #7, 1957 - A scientist fishes out a strange new sea creature, intent on using it for atomic radiation experiments. Despite the sci-fi theme, Al Williamson's layouts are a tad monotonous. Ralph Mayo's inks usually enhance the pencils, but has little effect in this case. Only one panel stands out: the scientist's confrontation with the creature in a darkened room (page 4). Not only is the scene heightened by dramatic lighting, but Williamson frames the panel in wide, painterly strokes. This story was later reprinted in The Art of Al Williamson. Other artists in this issue include Jack Abel, Bob Forgione, Ed Winiarski and Carl Burgos (cover). This is number 2 of 2 World of Suspense issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or World of Suspense issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
