Forbidden Worlds #69 - Al Williamson art

Forbidden Worlds v1 #69, 1958 - An esteemed scientist invents a bridge to another dimension, where peace and technology reign. But would the violence on Earth infect the other planet? Al Williamson seems most at home illustrating science fiction, and this effort is no exception. The artist fills the pages with an illustrative realism and heightens drama through contrasting light and shadow. Williamson's opening splash crackles with both excitement and energy, matched only by his imaginative alien landscapes (pages 3-7). Other artists in this issue include Ogden Whitney, Jon Diehl and Al Wenzel. This is number 6 of 8 Forbidden Worlds issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Forbidden Worlds issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
